Good old days. My husband, used to go to the Tower Ballroom and the Empress Club on Saturday nights. Anybody have any memories of the Tower in those days? Although I cannot remember any names from those days, if anybody went to the Empress or Tower - would love to hear from you.

I remember well the fairground with all the rides that did their best to make you sick after the hotdogs and the candyfloss. Who got a kiss in the ghost train or at least a cuddle from their girlfriend? Everywhere the smell of food and the constant music playing so loud. I remember the 'Tower' which was destroyed by fire in 1969.
