    Ay up from Canada

    Hello Stevie. I lived in southern California for many years and still experienced what I called Goose Fair weather every year! Of course no one knew what I was talking about.

    I joined the site yesterday after looking for something. I grew up in Nottingham, went to Peveril School on Robins Wood Road in the late 50's left early 60's and at that time I lived on Elstree Drive. Spent alot of time at the Dungeon Club, Boat and Brit in the 60's. I moved to the USA in '67 and spent many years there before returning home.

    Burtons Arcade

    Yes I remember Burtons very well. Sadly it closed many years ago. It was especially nice at Christmas. They used to have delivery boys on bicycles with the baskets on the front.They mainly delivered to residents in The Park. In a way it was like Nottinghams own Harrods food hall.
