Anyone still around and would like a coffee
The fire was a very memorable event for me. My mother had been to collect me from my grandmother’s, where I had been staying for a few weeks. We got off the bus in Bridge Street and caught the next in Long Causeway; there were hose pipes everywhere. The bus rode over large ramps set to protect the water pipes; up and down the bus went. Mum was just glad to going away from the seeming chaos.
I remember talking to Freddie, Mens’ wear DM about it one morning in the DM’s rest room. I had told him that I came from Peterborough. He told me a fascinating tale of the rumours of how the fire had started.
What a wonderful look in to times past
