Abbey Road Barrow & The Ritz Cinema Circa 1962

A Memory of Barrow

I was born in Barrow in 1954, later living in Dalton and Ulverston up to 1970. Many happy memories of a trip to the Ritz Cinema, but the one that stood out was Mutiny On The Bounty made in 1962 starring Marlon Brando & Trevor Howard. Probably my first visit.

Also Abbey Road always appeared a grand entrance to the town a wide road and trees either side.
