Iremongers pond, something to do with Albert Iremonger landlord of nearby Ferry pub. I Went to school near there and we always knew it as Georges pond.

Like you denshaw, when I went to Roland green, we always knew it as 'George's ' pond. The field on the other side of the road was where the pit ponies stayed!, When they came out of the pit.

Hi everyone. My grandmother was a student nurse at Ransom in the mid 1950's and I am trying to see if anyone from that era is around or has photos of the staff? Her name at the time would of been Ursula Marianne Schumann or Flint. If anyone has anything at all, I would be very thankful!

Looking at Poohbear's link, the writer says he worked in "the Weights & Measures Office, Exchange Alley". So it's one of the rooms on here, which was down the south side of the Exchange building.

The front of the Exchange is on the left, facing the Market Square. "Poultry" along the bottom is where the Flying Horse was.

You know Cliff Ton, I never thought I'd live long enough to ever read the sad words: 'Where the Flying Horse was'

Anyone know what store has the illuminated sign opposite The Odeon?

Would it be Pearson?

They certainly were opposite the Odeon and did have a large illuminated sign. I’ve spent some time there in the past preparing and auditing their accounts. Behind the scenes it was a rabbit warren. Even more so when they took over AB Gibson’s and went right through to Parliament St. There was a turntable in Gibson’s for spinning their vans round. Pearsons’ directors used to park in there. John Pearson used to enter at speed in his Jensen Interceptor, break hard on the turntable which spun round to face the exit. Good to watch!
