Regal cinema Handsworth
« on: December 07, 2020, 05:25:26 PM »
 September 1957-'Bernadine' starring Pat Boone was showing.
 It showed American college kids with NO PARKING signs on the walls of their rooms.
 That night the Soho Road was stripped of it's advertising signs.
   Players Navy Cut,Oh Bisto! Smoke Digger Tobacco, Walls Icecream,etc.
   Beautiful coloured enamel signs that went to reinforce our shed-GANG HUT.
   The following summer my mother said,'Instead of hanging around the streets,
   You can get rid of that eyesore!
   I burned the shed and buried the signs in the garden.
   I now cry tears of blood every time I see the price of them on Salvage Hunters etc!

Hello CoolGdad welcome to the forum hope you enjoy it , like you I'm sure we all cringe when we see what prices some of the old stuff goes for nowadays . Stuff which we thought were worthless
If voting made any difference , they wouldn't let us do it.
