Now i do like this..me old stamping ground.53950-1-280-99999-unpad.jpgDated around 1951?..given the Clifton Webb film showing at The Mechanics.

Jones's across the way..great for Beech Nut and PK gum..even in my day. I don't recall the Mechanics..but have memories of the New Mechanics Institute being built...and it's neighbouring shops...including Haslans and Babels...i'll leave the two motors to my friend Willow..

The tower lettering had gone well before the Station was demolished.

Saying NO to recreational drugs is big with me..and have drilled it into my kids.

Tom Walker reinforces this with this anti drug message within his song.

Have voted him as best newcomer.

Cheers Ian. I ask because I remember talk about evacuation when I was a nipper. I would be 4 in 1942 when living in Peveril St. Maybe it only applied to the City centre? Wonder where the kids went to? Maybe Pipewood Camp.

Thought Nottinghamian Lesley Crowther and Peter Glaze were brilliant in the early 60s. They had some great bands on the show back then. 

The Christmas shows were fantastic.

Did you know Ronnie Corbett started his career on Crackerjack?

Missed the TV version of Up The Junction..but Peter Collinson did a great movie.Mike D'Abo was a great replacement.

I ordered this soundtrack from the 'new' Broad Marsh shop..£5.79!

Loved this film. Portrayed the era so well. I also love Spring & Port Wine.

The 60s black &  white kitchen sink drama films are always a good watch. How the world has changed.
