They also traded from the various markets,Ashton,Hyde,Stockport.
Tripe was a staple for many families of that era & generation.
Among the few places near us where you can still buy tripe and the associated intestinal delicacies are two shops in Cheadle and Edgeley
I suppose nowadays, the main purveyors of tripe are 'Sky Sports News', 'The Sun', 'The Daily Mail' and 'The Mirror' and the likes.
Absolutely NB; IWT's dry, Irish humour is fantastic - long may it continue.
The said media "purveyors" also specialise, to a supreme degree, in producing bile, which is somewhat far removed from JC's "associated intestinal delicacies".
