I lived in Gas Street in the fifties - did anyone else come from around there.

Here's more or less the full length of Gas Street from 1949 taken from Britain from Above - I've marked the Gas Tavern as seen above in red.

The Gas Club was along there as well. I used to go there with friends who were Gas Board apprentices.

In 1959 I joined a company, E. Laxon & Company, Wholesale Grocers and Provision Merchants, which was located in Gas Street. Would you remember that? As I understand it they relocated to Charter Avenue, a few years later, by which time I had left to join the Royal Navy. I also understand that the area was required for the Ring Road.

Does anyone remember the company (in or around Gas Street) who manufactured crisps? The bags had the three spires logo on and the proprietor and his wife used to come into the Gas Club for a drink. Edited by member, 4th Feb 2018 7:33 pm

The crisps with the "Three Spires" logo was Robinsons. Wholesale they were supplied in tins (I assume of 48 packets) rather than boxes. If you type "Robinsons" in the search box you will find a few references to them. Edited by member, 4th Feb 2018 8:36 pm

Thanks for that, TonyS. I had a senior moment as I now realize the topic had been covered before.

Yes I remember the factory, we used to go there from St Osburg's School at dinner time and ask if they had any left over.
