War Memorial Gaumont Coffee Shop Toy Shop & Beatles!

A Memory of Bradford

I remember standing here in the cold with my dad & mum on remembrance days when I was very young.
Opposite the Gaumont/Victoria Cinema there used to be a row of shops, one of these used to be a coffee bar where my aunty used to take me in the 50's; we used to meet up with her boyfriend and his friends, I think there was a club also in that block.
At the other side of that shopping block was a wonderful TOY shop where I got my first doll with HAIR !! and moving eyes.
Then in the early 60's I remember queuing up to see the Beatles at the Gaumont.. wonderful days..
