    Hiya drone_pilot,

    Many thanks for the photo's.
    It was good to meet you.
    I had a great morning visiting Lewis's 5th floor yesterday.
    Brought back many happy memories of the late fifties.
    I also met some lovely ladies (Sybil, Beverley and more) who worked in the hairdressing department way back then. They told some very funny tales!!

    If you, your mum or granny used to go to the '5th floor', go back and have a look - it's like stepping back in time.

    Jenny
