I can remember going to the Essoldo to see Marty Wilde, Joe Brown, Susan Maugham and a few others, that would have been about 1962, I think Bill Haley was on as well, the Essoldo used to have good stage acts on regularly.

Life wasn't worth living for a woman if she didn't scrub her step every week.

Strange communal pastime. Often it would be that neighbours seemed to scrub their steps on the same day in a week, around the same time of day and chatting away whilst they did .
