  1. Oh yes, one of my old haunts back when. We would meet around 7-30, then decide if it was Titos, or the Fiesta. Went into the Royal Oak a couple of years ago when I was home. Like every thing, things have changed.

  2. This photo is a real tear-jerker. I lived in the flat on the top floor of the Midland Bank opposite the Royal Oak. It was my Dad’s favourite pub, he loved a pint of Bass and a chin-wag here. Next door is the Westminster Bank that still had the air-raid siren on the roof. The nostalgia is completed by the motorbike parked outside on the wet cobbles and the little Ford van opposite.
    I lived in the High Street from 1947 to 1949 when we moved to the new Council housing estate at Newham Grange opposite Sparks Bakery. In 1951 my Dad died of a heart attack. I was 9 years old.
