The posh waterside bit with the BBC and new flats

# My brother went to uni in Salford.
The locals used to launch fireworks bazooka-style at the student accommodation.

Visiting parents were warmly encouraged by the university to leave their cars in a gated car park ringed with barbed wire and patrolled by guards with dogs.

Only one of my brother's friends could imitate the local accent well enough to get served in their local pub without getting beaten up.

When my dad went up to visit him, he saw a local kid playing in the street wearing a shirt and nothing else. The kid took one look at my dad (who was dressed in a suit) and said "Are you a doctor?"
