The north side of Cobourg Street is almost unchanged. The Public Secondary School (right), whose most well-known old girl is Angela Rippon, is now part of the University of Plymouth, and the playground is occupied by satel- lite dishes.

Hello....Why is there apparently no Industrial History society in Plymouth ? I would like to contact anyone who has memories of the Tecalemit company, in Belliver Industrial Estate, and particularly when they were joined by Merryweather company in 1984.
When I was a child I'd go into town with my mother and to come home we'd stand on Old Town Street waiting for the 43 or 44 bus to Whitleigh, and I was mesmerised staring at the Guinness Clock as each word lit up progressively: GUINNESS - IS - GOOD - FOR - YOU. Happy times.
