Fifty years ago tonight I was sat in front of our black and white television watching the Moon Landing. I was 14 years old and stayed up all night watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the Moon. It was a Sunday morning and at 6.00am I went to the Post Office on Ainsworth Lane, Tonge Moor to start my paper round. I can remember sitting in the morning sunshine reading the newspapers before I delivered them. To celebrate I am wearing my NASA t-shirt!
To re-live the day I also took a photo of myself stood outside what was the Post Office where I did my paper round.
