Chester, The Groves 1949

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 was born in this street in 1965 , my mum and her sister both with their own families lived next door to one another in numbers 34/36 ....Though I'm living in America right now my family all still live in and around the Handbridge area .....

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

Had a lovely meal in this place courtesy of a disabled aquaintance residing there. First time I had seen oysters ordered and eaten. Also cocktails shaken by the barman. I remember not knowing that the pot containing ginger was meant to be sprinkled on the half melon.
