    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

    i tried the phone number from the echo to book a tour. tried it for 3 days and it never got answered. lewis`s can get to stuff and close for all i care if they cant be bothered picking a phone up. if all the places had gone they could have put a message up.

    nice pics by the way.

    fantastic posters and good pictures.

    One can only live in hope of a Harvey Nichols with a swanky restaurant on top to go with a refurbished Adelphi and liners in port.
