Hi Kiwi,

Yes I remember these! When we visit a museum these days..its not to learn..its to reminisce!! There is a museum in Eastbourne that has a range of foodstuffs from yesteryear..we recognise them all!!
Congrats on your long marriage, I find it helps if you have the same sense of humour..well you have to laugh! A happy New Year to you and your family. Do you live in London?
My nan lived in the Purbrook Estate in Tower Bridge Road, opposite Sarsons Vinegar factory and near The Caledonian market, which used to open at two in the morning so that all the villians could come and sell their dodgy gear...I believe Princess Margaret's jewells were sold there Twice!

My nan was called Minnie Gertrude Rhodes she married Henry Mortimer, we used to visit the live eel stall (I didnt like seeing them cut up) which I believe was owned by the Mortimers. Minnie lived until she was 86 and used to push a pram to help her walk about, she enjoyed a Guinness and used to drink in The Bear (it was Black or White Bear, I cant remember which!!)
all the best, Matilda (Jeanette)

Hi Matilda.
We now live in New Zealand and yes you do have to have a sense of humour. I think the pub you are talking about is The White Bear which you can see in the Long Walk Topic, which is on page 18.

Hi Kiwi,

Lovely place to live I'm told, bit further than Lincolnshire!...yes...bit of a pain getting up that early...and the tiara I picked up cheap kept falling off me head when I tipped me Guinness glass back to capture the last little dregs!

We have thick snow here at the moment..and the shops are full of the masked avengers..funny..people dont die of flu and old age anymore..just covid!

When I lived in Dockhead, Shad thames was close by(all posh flats now) The smell of spices and other strange aromas were always present,I remember the Spillers factory and the cloud of flour that was always in the air..The Ship Aground pub where you could have a turn on the mike, everyone a Frank Sinatra or Gracie Fields..The Fire Station always going off to shouts, coming back with fire damaged goods and flogging them in the pub, I worked in Woolworths in The Blue for a while..girls were always bringing in clothes and jewellry to flog..it was all good...it said so on Shaw Taylors Police 5!!

take care
Jeanette Matilda

POLICE 5, that brings back some memories, Shaw Taylor MBE sadly no longer with us (26 October 1924 – 17 March 2015).

love your humour Jeanette, you sound as silly as me. :?: As you say Shad Thames with the smell of spices and other strange aromas, after all these years just a whiff of something similar can take you back to Shad Thames. :) I do not know who Mike was in The Ship Aground Pub but what a lucky guy he was, I bet he has a lot of memories. ;)
Stay Safe Kiwi (Ray).
