T. Thompson, writer

Post  davidcelyn on Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:19 am

Iím a writer who specialises in the work of Dylan Thomas. Iíve come across a reference to Dylan reading Tommy Thompson's books, so Iím thinking of writing something on that. Iíd be grateful for help in finding out more about Mr Thompsonís articles for the Manchester Guardian on Plum Street; I canít seem to find them anywhere on the internet. For example, were these articles about actual people who lived on Plum Street, and was the street in Bury? Or was Plum Street a fictitious name? Likewise, is Owlerbarrow also a fictitious village, though I do know there is an Owlerbarrow Road in Bury. And did Mr Thompson live in Bury all his life? Thanks in anticpation, David

Hello David. There was quite a collection of entries on the Forum in 2013 and 2014, which you would find still listed on the menu. Some of the Forum entries were from members of Tommy Thompson's relatives so you may find some help from them.
Regards,
Roy.

Thanks Roy. Am I right in thinking that there's no Plum Street in Bury? David

Hello David. You are quite right that there is no Plum Street in Bury. There is one in Oldham apparently, but probably no connection with Tommy Thompson.
