Going To The Pictures


“The Essoldo (ice box) on Linacre road (opposite the corpy bus shed)

When the Hammer (Dracula) pictures was on us Marsh Lane bucks never missed one of them .

There was 4 or 5 of us was watching Christopher Lee (Dracula) gets out of the coffin in the Castle. Everyone in the flicks scarred stiff. My friend Terry pulled a Mick (pigeon) from under his coat let it go and the image of the wings flew across the projector the whole house was in hysterics we all got threw out (still smile today)”
