Last night saw the great tram crash in Coronation Street. An explosion at The Joinery set the scene for a dramatic tram crash into both the Corner Shop and the Kabin.
To pay tribute to the world's longest current runnning soap, I'm blogging a quote a day from Corrie's past up until the big day.
Today, it's the turn of Corner Shop grocer Alf Roberts. This quote from his wife-to-be at the time, Audrey Potter, summed him up.
After 38 years on the Street, our Alf passed away on New Year's Eve 1998/99. His real-life alter ego Bryan Mosley, who was suffering from ill-health at the time, outlived his on-screen character by just a matter of weeks - passing away on February 9th 1999.
So, quote No.6...
"You could meet Alf Roberts riding on a horse in the middle of the Sahara Desert and still know he's a grocer" - Audrey Potter (later Roberts)
