Hi Mary Street

Welcome to the forum, in 63 I would have been up and down Mary Street quite a lot, but I have no memory of a Phil's shop. Where was it and what did he sell.

Was Cannon Hill Grove still like this when you lived there?

Does anyone have an old photo of the bottom end of George Street where it intersected with Edward Road, Wenman Street and Tindal Street? My Gran (Marion Dennis, nee Measey) lived in George Street in the first house on the left (looking from Edward Road) until the 60's. The house was one of three (two fronted onto Tindal Street) that backed onto a central yard. All three shared one outside thunder box in the yard!  I remember it well from when I went to my Gran's for lunch from Tindal St School in the 50's.

This is the best I can do it's from the 70's. I wouldn't mind a photo from the 60's myself that shows the Medina Café at the bottom of George Street the place that used to be a greengrocers shop.

Cheers Phil! Getting a photo that includes the bottom end of George St seems to be v. elusive!! O0
