The Blakes Market Debate - a Memory of Barking.

I don't know when the issue was first posted. However, I grew up in Barking and remember both the old Regent cinema in Ripple Road (just) and when in became Regent's Market. Killwicks was in East Street and the furniture store in Ripple Road was Winch's (or Winch-es). My mum used to say that the Regent cinema was the worst in town!

The Regent cinema was also known as the "Bugole", and the "Fleapit".
