More about this scene

The boom towers originally had a chain stretched between them, which could be raised to block the River Wensum if need be. Unfortunately, the right-hand tower is now only half the height it was in this picture.

Other Memories from Norwich

I remember going into the Jenny Lind the day Prince Andrew was born, the 19th Feb 1960. I had swelling in my Neck left from mumps and had radium treatment. I was on the Gannon Ward and can also remember the side ward which seemed like a glass conservatory. The nurses were lovely and they had a lovely playroom and dolls house. I too remember the green walls and pink toothpaste that tasted lovely.
