    Default Rita Tushingham

    She was born on 14 March 1940 in Liverpool, and started her career as a stage actress at the Liverpool Playhouse. Her screen debut was in A Taste of Honey in 1961, the groundbreaking movie of the British realist tradition. She had memorable performances in The Leather Boys (1963), The Knack...And How to Get It (1965) and Doctor Zhivago (1965). The Knack (and how to get it) was filmed in the Southam Street area of Notting Hill.

    She was an icon of 1960s Britain, and was popularised again in the 1980s by her appearance in Carla Lane's Bread.

    Smile Parent's store

    ...and her parent's store (grocery?) was on the corner of Garston Park...

    It kept the Tushingham name for a long time, but it has now been re-named...

    I always understood that her parents shop was by Frank Tuzios in Hunts Cross

    Always thought her best film was 'The Trap', with Oliver Reed.

    My husband is from Halewood, and he tells me that the Tushinghams would deliver groceries to the houses in the area - before the shops where built. (Their shop was on Higher rd.)


    Tushingham's wasn't actually in Hunts Cross, but was further down towards Halewood opposite Mackets lane.

    Tuzios was ( or is still) a barbers shop.

    He says that perhaps the Tush's had a shop in Garston Old rd. too ? - not sure - he only knows the one which was opposite Mackets lane.




    ps,

    he reckons the Tushingham shop became a taxi office - or was it the tyre shop ??
    There was a club behind there called St Andrews.

    I understood it to be next to Tuzios, the newsagents.
