Market Dave, Altrincham

Post  xray on Thu Apr 17, 2008 3:37 am

The old bloke who has been pushing a cart around the streets of Alty for as long as I can remember. Despite his entire vocabulary being made up of strange roaring noises and a sprinkling of abuse, rumour has it he's actually a millionaire with shit loads of property just having a laugh at the public's expense..

Has anyone ever figured out what exact route Mad Dave follows and the purpose of his odyssey?

Great how he gives shit to passing motorists who beep him, like pushing a cart down one the busiest stretches of road in Manchester is a perfectly normal and reasonable thing to do.

'market' dave as i know him collects cardboard boxes from alty market and then walks down past the station, past my office window whooping and a hollering - the most entertaining thing that ever happens round here. roll on market day.

Ah yes, mad dave or dancing dave as i call him.
He can often be found fo a night time freqeunting the pubs of alty doing his mad dance to the juke box or indeed a kareoke night.
Either way he is most entertaining.

That bloke has been around for years ! I pass him 2 or 3 times a week and it's a case of eyes front and pray he doesn't pick on you - 'the nutter on the bus' syndrome. He used to go in The Old Mill - I saw him in there when watching United on Canal+. I'm told he's not as daft as he makes out but whether that's true or not, he does a very good imitation.

Mad Dave used to live in Broadheath and would visit my brothers workplace when he worked at Stamford Van Hire, he's not as daft as he makes out, but apparently he's no millionaire. He was gutted when for a wind-up someone hid his cart, took him a week to find it.
Top village idiot though, used to love it in the summer when he walked around with no shirt but kept his flat cap on.

I used to live on Sinderland Road and I often saw mad Dave pushing his cart down past mine towards the council places at the back, I presumed he lived there somewhere.
How he hasn't died/been run over, I don't know. I remember even when I was a youngster, he would stagger up and down George Street, shouting through shop doorways and that.

Market / Mad dave still exists - I saw him the week before last holding up all the traffic on washway Road as he walked down the road itself with rag and bone cart.

There used to be this fella in The Robin Hood in Stretford who used cut up crisp packets with a pair of scissors - very meticulous and even more entertaining.
The Urmston has this fella called Bert who pisses anywhere he can.

Market Dave is definitely no millionaire. FACT.
Also he once got his 'fella' out and tried to urinate on me and a friend in Altrincham precint and kept spitting at us. We deserved it as we were mocking him. We were only 15, I realise know when i see him that the guy deserves a medal for his services, he is class.
