Thanks but it wasn't that one Helen - there was another with some B&W images from South Street / West Street side.

Dreamtime, the Moo Kow Milk Bar I remember was on the left at the top of Far Gosford St when facing Gosford Green.

Many thanks Prof, for reminding me of my Knickerbocker Glory days sitting on those high stools in the Moo Kow Bar. If I remember correctly the Victorian fountain was still in action on the corner of the green in those days. 'Those days' - the times I have said that lately! Thumbs up

The Moo Kow milk bar. That really takes me right back to the early 50s. After church on a Sunday morning at All Saints, Far Gosford St we'd go to the Moo Kow for a Horlicks and a Wagon Wheel. I seem to remember that the rooms over the café were later used by the Hazel Hathaway dance school.

Prof, your picture of 1955, wasn't the cinema just to the right of those people where the shops jut out?

Yes Kaga, in my previous post, the Scala (later Odeon) was on the RH where you said. The photo looks towards Gosford Green. There was also a greengrocers next one going towards Gosford Green, and before the plate glass window you can see which was a linens or bed ware type of shop. Forget the name.

If I remember rightly I think the greengrocer was Jackson's.

Prof, Poulterers, now that jogs the memory. Coventry's feather pluckers, not easy to say when you have had a few.

Interesting to see from MR's photo, in comparison to the earlier shot, how roofs, chimney pots and finials have been removed from buildings.
