Oldham Street (Manchester)
We were asked about the clothes shops on Oldham Street. I bought my Madras check trousers, pacamac, white denim jacket, etc, from C&A. Not very cool, I admit. But what were the other shops?

Bunnies on Oldham Road was if not the first, then one of the first youth shops to cater for the new teenage market. I first went there in about 1960, when still at school and was sent home from school a few times for jeans being too tight and shirts too colourfu.
