Hi all

I never went to the market in East Lane, but my Mum did with my Nan, she (my Mum) was over the other day and I was showing her this site and all the photos, she was so interested, then she started out with all her recollections, and before I could say anything, her first was Prince Monolulu!!

We found this soundtrack on youtube, dunno if you've all heard it or not?

Hope it works!!

all the best

Ian

Fosney, if you look at my earlier post which is just above it does go some way in explaining maybe why the market was called a different name by certain people. Though this is not proof it is food for thought but I suspect we will never know.

I think the Boxer Tommy Noble was the one that sold White Horse Oils (Embrocation) outside the Church in East Street, which I think was called St Joseph’s or All Saints not sure.
I use to go to Wellington College Youth Club there which was held in a building to the side of the Church, this would have been the early 1950s. There were many activities within the club. It had a few good-sized snooker tables, table tennis tables and in the upstairs gym, a five-a-side football area plus either a 'Brownies,' or 'Girl Guides' group. I mainly went there for Boxing and have been told that the boxing coach at that time was a guy called Mick Healan. I can remember a scary looking guy with a cauliflower ear and a flat nose but he was more like a ‘gentle giant' as far as I can remember. One thing I can remember, was one night while training the coach said to me, hit me as hard as you can, I know I was only about thirteen but I put all my strength into it, hit him on the jaw and he just stood there as though it was a fly landing, he never even blinked It was like punching a brick wall.
