Mo: Wavertree Road was ‘The Shopping Centre’. It was wonderful. We didnâ€™t go to town as youngsters, you know if, I used to hate, you know, going back to school time and youâ€™d see Freemanâ€™s window with all the clothes in ready to go back to school.
Jenny: Oh you knew it was time!
Mo: That was where youâ€™d get all you know youâ€™d get all your good clothes, and then there was Woolies next door wasnâ€™t there. It was a marvelous shopping centre. And as teenagers we used to go up to Kay Nelson which was on the top and I see its still there!
Jenny: Still there.
Mo: Used to get all our clothes for dances there it was beautiful.
Jenny: Oh wow.
Mo: You used to feel really good if you got something from there.
