The Astoria - a Memory of Hyde.

I remember going to the Astoria when I was 16(1967) I used to say I was 18, I suppose it was a dance hall, I remember there was a balcony where you could go and I remember that there used to be a man downstairs at the entrance, I think he was called Ron. I remember the pubs that I was able to get in at 16, The Woodman at the bus station The Jolly Carter. There was Mishia's ice cream parlour Duncan and Fosters cake shop and cafe in the mall, my girlfriend(Evelyn Millns) worked in there in the cafe, I'd give anything to be sat in that cafe for a day. My Name is Tony Smith.
