Memories of Chester


i was born in the infirmary in 1944 and lived in Claremont Walk by Bold Square i remember the tanks as they were disturbing the tarmac on the way from the station to the rodee

I used to attend St. Marys without the walls church service every Sunday and eventually in 1956 got married there by the Rev. Digby Thomas. My Father had been a choir boy in that church many years before, having lived in Handbridge I used to visit my relatives in Handbridge every week, where my great Uncle worked (...Read full memory)

This is 1950s, before that there was a lower smoke stack, I used to live in Christleton Road and can remember the old one!

I think this photograph no. C82013, is of Bridge Street, not Eastgate Street and is taken from the southern end of Bridge Street towards St Peter's Church? The church appears to be the same as photo no 28876 of Bridge Street 1891, and also taken from the same position.
