Smashing picture of the Kings Arms Fosney, that is the first time I have seen a picture of it. Looking at the list the place to the right of the Kings Arms is a Restaurant, I would never have guessed that. I did think there was a sweet shop along there but it seems I was wrong, maybe I got it mixed up with the Toy Shop? Like some of the other members I remember going to the Old Kent Road cinema, drinking in both the pubs and getting a bag of crackling from the Fish & Chip shop (Old Joe’s).
