thank you so much for putting this thread on. After watching the beginning I though it looked good.I didn't realise just how much better it got. As I watched further on till the part of East Lane, I found myself looking and listening at my Uncle George on his drinks stall selling his sarsparilla. Behind him, my 2 aunts. OMG it was just like yesterday. Thanks you so much again.
Great link, thanks, Hmeah. Some of those shots I've seen before, but not all. I recognised a few good old faces there. It's also opened up some great options to view other links from the same and earlier eras, which I will wade through over time.
Mal, you must mean Georgie Barnes? His daughter was one of our groupe who hung around East Lane back in the early 1960's. I think her name was Christine.
I guess she must be your cousin?
Yes.It was Georgie Barnes. It's so sad, as when George died, that was the last we heard from Christine and her sister Sylvia. We do know that Christine developed M.S. but don't know what became of her and of Sylvia. When I was about 6-7 possibly younger, I remember going to a lock-up that george had.My mum and I used to wash the old labels off the bottles, rinse them out and stick the new labels on. There seemed to be hundreds of those bottles. Georgies motto: IF YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER, YOU MUST DRINK MY SARSPARILLA.
