    Wow! You've brought back memories. My father was Polish, he came to UK in 1945. My Sundays involved Mass at 10am at the local Catholic Church, after which I had to get the bus into Liverpool and walk up Brownlow Hill to the Jewish food shop at the very top up near the University Campus. I can't remember the name but Oy Vey do I remember the delicious aroma! Plait bread, black rye bread, poppy seed bread,bagels, cheesecake, boczek, kielbasa - I brought the lot home! I was only 4ft tall and 9 years of age and I had 2 leather shopping bags which my father made by hand, filled to the brim with Jewish food for my Polish father. He'd never have survived in UK without his kielbasa and black bread. You younguns think a Tesco bagel is a REAL bagel? Think again!

    I remmeber the Polish Club in Cheetham Hill in Manchester. Most of the older guys were Polish Airborne Troops, they had a bad time of it in Arnham. Brave men indeed.

    Rafal, I can't get that link you've posted to work. I've copied and pasted it without the brackets at each end but it's still coming up as a broken link. Any ideas what's wrong?

    The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine I believe own the adjoining property that supports Galkoffs , number 31 Pembroke Place, but they wish to demolish it. This will bring down Galkoffs and the LSTM will get the entire site for there new proposals. The matter is currently at the Civil Courts but it does not look hopeful that it will survive. Mr Bill Gates has given them far too much $$$$ so they will do whatever they want with their property.

    You never know they may have a change of heart and at least try keep the facade. I hope and wish they try and protect the tiled shop front before they remove their property.

    learn English as a foreign Language.

    I didnt know English was a foreign language, I thought all languages are foreign Except English.

    I was navigating a very large tanker up the Shatt al Arab in Iraq, I offered the Iraqi Pilot a cigarette, he said "I do not smoke foreign cigarettes". I said "These are not foreign cigarettes, these are English cigarettes." he said "Oh, that is OK then." and took one.
