    If you were to use the link to inacityliving you would discover way more than you thought you wanted to know. Worth a look just the same.

    Hiya Alan. 1968 until 1978. Only a short time in the grand scheme of things but as it was those years from aged 6 to 16, they were very impressionable years and it did make an impression on me. I did live over the road from it anyway from birth until 1968 and then over the road from it when I left until from 1978 until 1998 when I moved up here because of work.

    Some more different views of what have become familiar buildings whether gone or not.

    The David Lewis again, this time from Nile Street which was one of the streets that ran up towards the Anglican Cathedral.

    I thought the David Lewis was a concert hall of some kind! I know I tap danced and was in the ballet chorus (never had a ballet solo, ) there. My dance class teacher was Lillian Lloyd if I remember correctly, went from about 5 years old. We had a yearly show at the David lewis.

    Nice pics.
    What a shame to lose such buildings as the David Lewis theatre and Stanley Hospital.

    The Royal Hospital on the other hand is an eyesore from any angle!

    Has it gone now? I remember all our families having to go and watch kids tap and prance in costumes for a few hours. My father was such a good sport about it. Why are they pulling those wonderful pieces of architecture down?? Bad

    Yes, the David Lewis is described as a theatre, hotel and club and I've pictures of the Hotel entrance, Restaurant and Cafe entrance and a close up of the ornate tiling and wording and clock at the roof level. I will get around to posting them eventually. Also a nice array of Interior and Exterior views of the Turner Memorial Home on Dingle Vale.

    It closed in 1977 when these pictures of it were taken by Harry Ainscough and are now LRO property.

    What a shame. It was like Broadway to us when we were kids. Getting your solo dances perfect for the David Lewis, getting your cosumes for the David Lewis etc. It was so exciting. I was in awe of that building.

    Ged, off topic in a way but can you tell me why that when I went to Amazon to look for your books they are $17 new or $35 used!!! Who used them

    ---------- Post added at 12:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:00 PM ----------

    Just looked again, was last week I saw this (I was going to buy both as there is free shipping for that!) Now I see it says ....used $24 but nothing in the new section!

    ---------- Post added at 12:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:08 PM ----------

    Found it, a seller called Flying Colours
    $37.99
    + $3.99shipping Used - Like New

    Who used them? Well i've heard they've been seen cut into strips and hanging on a nail in Georgeporgies outside loo.

    www.countyvise.co.uk are the publishers who will mail you them at the original price. Thanks.

    Don't buy any of George's copies, they have a brown hue to them and it's not sepia.

    Just seems odd that they were twice as much for used, Like someone famous had used 'em!!! I like them so will get them

    Really, I will look into them. Love books. I need new for Ged's books as I want to buy some for Liverpool friends in Georgia as well. Christmas pressy (along with other Liverpool items)

    I just gave away over 200 hard backed books as I am clearing out but bought two (soft copy) books whilst in Montauk as it rained so much, finished both novels!!
