Thanks Neil, for the photo 148 from both myself and the wife Thumbs up as that's the place the wife got her wedding dress, just under the bridge on the left, 55 years ago Wink I've also driven on the road a few times to cross town.

My pleasure Dougie / all. The Westminster Bank looked a fine building as well.

Dreamtime Big grin I remember the shop and the display window opposite as if it was yesterday but not the name Smile, but I do remember it cost her two weeks of her wages for the dress. I've asked the wife the name but she can't remember either. 55 years, it's a long time. I'm hoping to reach 60 years all being well, as my three sisters and one brother have already achieved it - fingers crossed. Thumbs up

Evokes many memories for me CKV. Used to cycle from Woodlands School in Broad Lane to have my mid-day meal at Pattison's café. The Geisha also well known to our family. My brother worked for a time in Green's on the camera side before becoming manager of the camera dept at Harrison's High St.

Yes Geoff, I thought that too. The Queen's Hotel - it had a white sign in the form of a hand holding up a playing card of the Queen of Hearts!

I well remember Kunzle cakes Roger and I guess you are right about the provenance. I think you could buy them as well in Pattison's, Hertford St! As you might be of my generation, Roger we might have been in the Geisha café on Fridays at the same time, as my mother and grandmother met there, and I was usually with them, in the school holidays at least. We got to know one of the waitresses quite well, though I do not recall her name. Edited by member, 19th Jun 2018 10:01 pm
