Lived in Manchester

Sideline: I (Walford) met aunty Jos in Manchester around 1975. I was driving to a business meeting and came across a road I remembered from the address on letters written by her to my mum and dad in India. I rang my mum and dad for her house number. She was still there. We had a lovely evening. I noticed one of her fingers was missing. I asked her how she lost it. For those of you from India, remember those big heavy water taps (with a side push down handle) on the outside pipes....well, when she was a child one fell on her hand and chopped her finger off. It was in Villupuram.
