    Default Harrowby Street?

    Anyone remember Harrowby Street? It's no longer there but it used to run off Granby Street.

    I lived there in the mid to late 60's as a kid, just wonder if anyone else remembers it...?

    Ahhh...that's interesting. It is still there, sort of. It's now a Close instead of a Street.

    When I lived there it used to run from Granby Street to Kingsley Road.

    I...probably did. Can't really remember much about the school, it was a very long time ago.

    I do however have vivid memories of a cinema in Granby Street, can't remember what it was called.

    I can remember going there twice.

    My very first visit when I was a nipper was to watch a cartoon show. I got threepence off my mum and went in with my sister. I sat at the front, and they used to change the colours of the lights shining onto the curtains, and for some reason this frightened me and I started crying. I eventually got my money back and bought some sweets instead.

    Second visit I went with my mum in the evening, and sat upstairs in the balcony. For years I could never remember what the name of the film was we saw, I just had a recolection of a guy sitting on a barge on a canal, and he threw his sandwiches overboard because they tasted horrible, same with the flask of tea. Years later I was watching The Bargee, a sixties comedy with Harry H Corbett, and lo and behold there was that scene.
