Probably in the Mid Seventies
Superb! Mystery solved, thank you. I honestly couldn't recall it. Some fine period vehicles there, too - Marina, Escort MK3, princess, Talbot Solara...
Lovely structure, but crossing it leaves me weak at the knees…
Thanks, George, a lovely image
Remember them well, thanks, George. I also remember the bike shop that was there before them - Woods. Australians, I believe.
I can still visualise the wall tiling at Gally Chipship. Unless my memory is playing tricks it was a similar vessel as the one on the half-penny (old) piece. Lovely chips as well.
Was only saying to someone the other day when I was a kid the old Suntan place was Pearl Assurance where my mom had her policies from
Fishmongers was Sault if I remember correctly and they also ran the chipshop. Was also a shop along there that sold dinky toys. There was an opening half-way up and there was a West Indian Barber (could been another nationality i was young and fascinated by him) who was a very pleasant and friendly gentleman. Of course it upset Roberts Barbers on my road me being sent there by my step dad
No sorry I cannot remember the telegraph pole, but I was very busy at that time
