Liscard looking up Seaview Road. The Capitol takes centre stage. I think this was around mid 50s

Has the ABC logo between the two Capitol words. What did it stand for Associated British Cinemas would be my guess?

Used to go to the matinee and occasionally to an adult film when I got older, same with the Royal but my local was the Court which was the sister cinema to the Royal.

Note there are no zebra crossings, just studs marking the pedestrian crossing. They obviously came later.

Looking at the cars in the photo it is a lot earlier than the 1950's. The car in the foreground is most definately 1930's, as the ones further down the road appear to be.

No. There were toilets there but disappeared many years ago. They were never there during my life.

It probably is the fifties but you have to remember that a lot of cars were laid up during the war but brought out after it. They would be mainly thirties style until the country got up and running again. I can remember them with running boards we used to jump on like gangsters. Pity we can't see what is on the pictures which might give us a clue. Blown it up but it pixilates.

Yes, they do seem a bit dated. That's the date on the photo

That was the Monkey House. They weren't there in the sixties. I believe they went when they built the new Wellie

Me too. It was The ABC Minors' Club on Saturday mornings in the mid 60s. I remember watching the original Flash Gordon films with Buster Crabbe. I used to go along with my friends. We were only 5 and were allowed to go on our own.

I seem to remember when the roundabout was removed (in the 70's ?) that public toilets were unearthed

Does anyone know what those things are on the roundabout, one is at the bottom of the picture. They look like lights? There is one similar on the crossing, so I presume them to be lights of some sort?
