Queen Street. - a Memory of Leicester.
I was born in Queen St 1942, at No 19 ,opposite the Engine Hotel. I can still see the horse & drays lining up from the top of Queen St all the way down getting loaded up with goods & parcels from the railway yard, and me & my Mam going out with a bucket and spade,after they had gone on their round's, collecting what was left by the horse's for the garden !. Going into the chippy on the corner of George St/Queen St for threepenuth of chips from 'daddy kind' not sure if that was his name or not but that's what we called him.
