Alassio - a Memory of Bradford.

I went to the Alassio with a friend from school. We lied to our parents and said we were at the Christian Debating Society at Hanson Girls Grammar. I can remember the smell and the sound of the coffee machine. The cups were an orange coloured glass. We met two, much older boys/men there. It was all terribly exciting and risque and very sophisticated. I just loved listening to Helen Shapiro singing 'Walking Back to Happiness. !

The Allassio was just down the road from The Students Club where I sang in bands and became a resident compere. Often went into the Allassio for a coffee ( or Vivs Bar at the Majestic Pub ) bottom of Manchester Road. Great times and many fond memories
