I was born at Southbrook, Lenten Street in 1949. Father ran a shop called A Jones Tobacconist on High Street, which had earlier been my grandfather's (Arthur Jones - known as Jack). I went to school at Mayfield, opposite Anstey Park. I moved to Devon in 1959 and now live in Sweden, so have no modern memories of Alton. Has anybody any photos that show our old shop? It was on the corner of High Street and Turk Street. My claim to fame in 1957 or 58 - was that I was the first person to get knocked down on Alton's first 'Zebra Crossing.
