This is Cole Street primary school, where my brother and myself attended in the early 1950's. It has since closed and as of 2015 is the proposed site of a new residential development. The white area on the roof was our play ground, used for recess periods.

This large house was the nurses home for staff working down the road at the General Hospital. Living nearby, we were all used to seeing a steady stream of nurses walking up and down Park Road North between both buildings.

This building in Park Road East used to be the sea scouts hut and here in 1953 I watched television for the very first time when a bank of sets were lined up for people to come and watch the Queen's coronation.

Trinity Street Primary School. I started at this school in September, 1953 and attended until July 1960 when I left to go to Park High, having passed the 11 plus exam.

The Gaumont cinema. In the 40's at least, every Saturday morning had the "Kiddies' matinee". 2hours for 6 pence: 20 minutes "unknown subject"; cartoon; serial; main feature, occasionally pirates, usually western.... Enthusiasm often drowned out the sound.

I used to go here in the 1950's when I lived in Payson Street. We moved up to the Woodchurch Estate in Summer, 1959 but I still used to go down to the Saturday morning matinee.
