In the late 50’s and early 1960’s, when traveling up to “town” (London), I always visited a newsreel cinema. The larger train stations usually had a screen with an audience mainly comprised of lonely seniors, Sailors and Soldiers. But the programme always had a wonderful selection of short subject films and news articles from around the world. And Bob Danvers-Walker was the renowned voice of British Pathe' News along with the inevitable crowing rooster. I also did a bit of shopping, saw a live show in the West End and ended my day with a couple of “wets” at a Pub. Then I had to run for the last train of the day back to Southampton. Ah, such happy memories days! I wish I’d had a camera then.
