    Hi Chris,

    The gallery does not allow me to move photos within the same album, it only allows me to move a photo to another album. I will look into it to see if there is a modification I can add to the gallery that allows me to do it.

    hi chris, it was a surprise to see the old PDH pictures in the ET, the nurses having a tea break were (From left)Karen Belson, Maggie Moore(then Suri)Anita Downs and Jane Kew it was in the 1980s and probably at about half two in the morning as we all worked nights. Do you have any othere pictures of the night team and of Tim the night driver who really looked after all the night staff and was a huge part of the night life at PDH., always managing to find bread for our 5am tea and toast. hope you are ok, really enjoying the photos, Maggie Moore (also Moshy) previously Suri, ex staff nurse & night sister at PDH, have given you my husbands email address if needed.

    Hi Chris

    I would just like to inform you about the Gladstone area photos. You have named 3 photographs incorrectly please can you amend them. The 4 boys outside the shop 1 with a bike on page 2 is actually my grandads shop it was called Kalyal Food Store which is on 104 Clarence Road, Thanks for that upload i was soo excited to see it :-) The other picture is on the same page 2nd last picture that is the dead end of Clarence Road leading towards Taverners Road. The last picture is on page 3 and is the 2nd last picture (Builders working on the roof) that is right opposite my grandads shop 77 Clarence Road. Please can you amend them and also upload more pictures of the Gladstone area towards the Clarence Road end.

    Thank you very much

    Does anyone one have images or memories of The Cresta Coffee bar that was located in New Road, between St Mary’s and the Market?

    Hi Shafiq,

    I have amended those photographs you mentioned. Thank you for the information, it’s always good to get a little bit more information. Chris took so many photographs during the early 1980s that it was virtually impossible to remember all of the locations. Regarding, the ones you have mentioned, Chris, just remembered they were of the Gladstone area so thanks again for letting us know the locations. There are many more photographs of the Gladstone area to add, however, we are trying to work out locations of some of them. Watch this space!

    I look after the website for Billericay Methodist Church in Essex and I’m collecting information about our former ministers.

    One such is the Rev John Hurd Barley, who was I believe on the staff of the John Mansfield School until 1980.

    Does anyone have a photo of Mr Barley that I could publish?

    I have very fond memories of the Cresta Cafe in New Road, Peterborough. I first went there when I was about eight years old, and my Mum and myself were very frequent visitors throughout th sixties and very early seventies. We became very friendly with the owners and all the staff, even helping out in the kitchen with the washing up. We were loaned the use of the flat above the cafe one Christmas round about 1970ish,while the owners were away, and it was a very special Christmas, although some very spooky things happened during our time there. The owners retired and moved to Sheffield, where we remained in contact with them. I loved listening to the jukebox in the cafe. Would be good to hear from you if you have any photos or memories to share.
