The Blue Lamp
A Memory of Abingdon-on-Thames.
On the left of this photo you can see the famous blue lamp! Which one could see outside the local Police Stations, and made even more famous by the film, The Blue Lamp and also the TV series, Dixon Of Dock Green. Now right opposite the Police Station was a short wide pathway leading to the Church Hall, where on a Wednesday nights my friends and I would go 'rocking and rolling' and buy a Coke for one shilling (pounds and pence) or 5 pence today. Any trouble in the hall and you would see the Blue Lamp in about 2 mins flat! Not that we had much bother back then!
