This is a postcard in my possession.

If it’s any interest to you, although I was only aged two at the time, I remember seeing the Daily Mirror dancers and think I could possibly have been in this photograph. I also remember spending time in the children’s pool when I was a little older and remember walking home on my own from the pool in my soaking-wet knitted swimming costume, through St Anthony Gardens, up Coinage Hall Street, passed The Old Bethel to Dock Cottages in Dock Lane where we lived until we moved to St Just in 1940. Happy memories!
