  • This was round the corner from our house. My younger brother had a Saturday job there in the early 60s and was known as the swafega kid because of the amount he had to use to clean his hands after a day at Yallops

  • Willie Yallop raced at the start of British stock-car racing. Here’s a photo from 1957 — they didn’t care if a wheel came off in those days: https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19399395_1378144075554263_4385600377754221207_n.jpg?oh=34ca8b885412a52105582823535b7fec&oe=59CD330F
