Uxbridge 1950s - a Memory of Uxbridge.
Loved coming to Uxbridge every fortnight Saturday or Sunday to meet my schoolfriend who lived in Hillingdon.Much better than Harlesden which meant a tube ride or nicer still a 607 trolleybus all the way from Shepherds Bush,how I miss the trolleys.
There was a café on the corner at the front of the station open Sundays as was the café at the trolleybus terminus run by two women or at least when I was there. A good solid jukebox,records for 1955,singers long gone except Doris Day.
I recall visits to a cinema seeing THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT a very early rock n'roll film,can anybody tell me the location of the trolley terminus and the cinema which seemed close by?
I have very pleasant memories of Uxbridge
