Argyle Street - a Memory of Leicester.

Does anyone remember 'Argyle Street', I used live there as a young girl, now Sainsburys stands on that site in Belgrave. I would love to see any old photos if anyone has any of old Belgrave and the roundabout. It would be really appreciated.

I lived at 222 Argyle street for two years in 1951 and 52. It was the house above the butchers shop on the corner of Catherine street. I was only a boy and we lived there whilst our new house was being built on the Stadium estate. But the affection I feel for that house is immense, even though I'm now 71. I recall we'd only been there a few hours when there was a knock on the door. My mother answered and a boy was standing there. "Is lickle boy coming out to play?", he said to my mam. It was a lad called Tony Turner and he became my best pal whilst I lived there. Good, good times and people. I could go on and on. Johnny Adshead.
