The Hope Inn - a Memory of Wisbech.
I think it was 1949/50, I remember living along the canal side, Trafalgar Row it was called, over the other side from the Hope Inn. Somehow I think it was further up than Somerfield almost opposite the Empire. Most of my family used this pub as their social outlet for weekends, remember no TV, bingo or much else then. I remember the landlord and landlady a Mr. and Mrs. Firth and they had a son I think he was called Trevor. I never did see inside the pub, I used to have to play in their yard or sometimes I would be able to sit in the kitchen when it was colder. I can't quite see my house from this photograph but the next photograph I can see it exactly only because my father painted the passageway opening to the other terraced houses a brilliant white! Oh happy days!
