A Memory of Blackpool

In 1958 I was a pupil at Blackpool Grammar School on Raikes Parade. At lunchtime it wasn't unknown for some of us to leave the school premises and walk down to FW Woolworths store near to the Tower. Here, a virtual cornucopia of confectionary was to be found. Pick'n'Mix was my particular favourite. I spent my school dinner money on sweets rather than 'meat and two veg' in the school dining hall. At one time everything would have been available for the princely sum of 6d, but even by 1958, prices were on the rise.
