I'm sure I would have been there too, Dreamtime. Memories of being dragged around the shops by my mother (and sometimes father too) in the early 60s. After that it would have been studiously avoided, usually by being at Highfield Road. Those photos do remind us of a time when the city centre was busy and vibrant, back in the days when we actually celebrated Christmas. A few things of note from them: On Picture No.4 that is certainly no VW Beetle, it is an Isetta bubble car. I can't imagine they were much use for towing with its 300cc single cylinder engine. On Picture No.7, on the stall to the right, appears to be a display of peppers. I never remember seeing them anywhere when I was a child so I'm surprised they seem to have been popular at that time. As for Picture No.9, good grief! A middle aged man snogging a 15-year-old girl under the mistletoe in what looked rather more than a seasonal peck on the cheek. I would think that it would be sufficient to see him arrested now! It just looks a bit creepy and uncomfortable. Oh my

Something a little different. Christmas 1946 I attended a carol service in Jerusalem, to get to it we had to travel 40 miles there, 40 miles back, in a ten ton truck over a mountainous terrain, at least the padre was pleased.

Wandering around the Shopping Precinct last weekend on our visit, we were surprised to see the Christmas Lights and Decorations still up, plus banners advertising the Pantomime which finished early January! The lights on the trees in Broadgate still lit up at dusk!

I swear that there are some that are never taken down - just turned off.
