Fydell Street

Many thanks to Rob Smith for sending me these two pictures of old Fydell Street. The first is the men only bar at the Castle pub with landlord Samuel Reynolds behind the bar with his beer jug, and the second shows a very young Les Farrow with long hair and wearing a dress with his mother outside their off licence (opposite the Castle pub) which is now Johns TV repair shop.

  1. Ha...'long hair and wearing a dress' didn't have the same conotations in those days for boys...both sexes were dressed the same often up until 5 years old......not quite the same as wearing a frock and old mop as a wig in your 60's and riding round town on yer bike ......
