I also remembr having them, I have a photo somewhere of me wearing them when I was toddler.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I think I have that covered in both my choices of suppliers. Apart from that I don't think I could better Miles as he used to be head pie maker at Drake and Macefield's. :smile:

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I see your plan now Richard. Very similar to my brother in some ways nearly 20 years ago when he decamped to rural France (just N of Limoges). He had a four bedroom detached house with double garage in Hemel Hempstead. He bought that when it was a new build in the early 80's. 1999, he used it to fun...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

A nomadic existence for your retirement is bound to cost a considerable bob or two. Unless of course you intend to hoof it around and live under canvass and even that would not be all that cheap over 20 years or so. I see your dilemma and wish you well with whatever you decide Richard. Our original ...

Re: MAJESTIC CINEMA AND MATT HARTLEY.

My older sister Jenny used to get landed with me on a Saturday afternoon and we would both go to the Majestic. I went to the flicks and my Sister went dancing. The pictures ended a little befo...

Re: MAJESTIC CINEMA AND MATT HARTLEY.

Not quite as big as St Andrews, which is on Moseley Street not Manchester Road. The entrance had the rounded shop windows on either side of the entrance and the stairs started about shop depth from the frontage.
