Vaguely remember the Stanley. Remember the shops, were the houses are now, opposite the bingo. The butchers did a fab quiche and the chippy used to 'fritter fingers'.

My grandmother worked in the Stanley Arms many years ago and my cousin was the landlord/manager c1980

I also had an uncle who had the sweet shop opposite the Embassy Cinema (now the Bingo) and he retired to the IOM where he died a couple of years ago at the age of 104!!!

Remember the Dolls Hospital but didn't go in!!! and the fritter fingers - wonderful!! - and agree chips ain't what they used to be!!

Whereabouts was the Doll Hospital? What era was this? I'm assuming kids took toys there to be mended (stating the obvious, i know). Was it a glorified toy shop or did it have 'wards' and 'nurses/drs?'
what was the cost/ pricing?
i find this very interesting and would love to know more about it. smile

Doll's Hospital was in the next block up from the Stanley Pub - no idea about prices - didn't have any dolls!!!!

I lived in Seacombe from 1940 (birth) to 1955
