More about this scene

The Old House dates from 1612 and was originally a guildhall for the city's butchers. More recently it housed a branch of Lloyds Bank, who gave the building to the city in 1927. Today it is a most delightful museum. The new Lloyds Bank is the imposing building with the columns on the left of the photograph.

I can remember taking Cyril Franklis tea every morning at 10.30 in his office where he had a model of the new Franklin Barns building to ...see more

My Memory is of the Kerry Arms Hotel between 1972 to 1979. My parents were the Manager and Manageress and I was the oldest of 4. I was 6 when we moved there. My Sister Gail and I went to a little school around the corner called St Peters. It was an all girls school and I loved it. We were all certain that the hotel was haunted by a ghost (who we named Percy) we would hear lots of strange tales of things that occurred. Passed ...see more
