Hi Pauline, Yes I remember the bomb hole in Whitefriars Lane and apparently looking at an earlier post you remember ME as you remember playing with Gina. You are correct in saying that it was Victors Ice Cream who had their manufacturing plant in this Street and also a cafe and ice cream parlour. I have only just started using this forum (or any other for that matter). Very interesting and provoking so many memories. By the way I didn't go to St. Mary's school, only to the church. Wave

Hi Pauline, Thanks for replying to me post. It is lovely to trawl through this site - I finding it very interesting and I will post photos when I have time. Going back to the bomb crater, I recall a few of 'our gang' made a bit of a den out of it. I saw another post and photo of the shop at the top of the street and seem to recall that a lady called Mrs.McCutchen ran it. I still have much contact with the street as I bought Mum and Dad's old house(56) and next door and now rent them to students so my memories of those times are re kindled every time I go in them (usually to clean them!) I lived in Whitefriars Street until I got married. Do you remember the dancing school in the Gaumont? Smile

A very nice series of images baffled54, thanks for posting them. The picture above is where Whitefriars Lane came out onto Gosford Street. Just to the right of the image was the building that is now the Whitefriars Olde Ale House.
