I made a comment upon Photograph 394. Attached is a photograph of me and Cecil Turner sitting in his cafe which was part of his shop in Market Street.
Is this of any use to you? I don't know the date but it would be between 1960 and 1966.

I really enjoy this site. Keep up the good work.

When Cecil Turner altered his shop he made a doorway out onto Wharf Road he also made a kiosk on the front of his shop. There was a push button bell to attract Ces's attention and it was great fun to creep underneath, out of sight of the owner, press the bell and nip round into the cafe entrance on Wharf Road and watch Ces hanging out of the kiosk looking for his invisible customer.
Not much of a joke, I know, but we never seemed to tire of it.
Cecil turner specialised in the sale of damp biscuits.
But I don't think they caught on anywhere else then or since.

We spent many hours in the small cafe as teenagers that and Congri Youth Club. It was the only place to go until you could pass as 18 in the pubs. Good old Cecil.
