Previous Memories

Thank you for the further information you sent me, but I  cannot trace on your site the Middlecroft Pub and the "lane"  photo's.

I have attached a photo of a street party in Northcroft  Crescent where I lived. When  I looked at your Northcroft Road photo's I  lived on the left about the 3rd car down...number 25.

The street party I believe was about 1943-45, the closest I  have, but probably D-Day ?? I was born in Dec of 1941 and I am back row fair  haired, sitting front of the women in the white "pinny"

If you have time could you confirm where the Middlecroft  pub is and the Lane photo's, as I would like to print off and send to my Dad  (93/4 age). The Orchard mentioned in the write-up in the lane  enroute to the cemetery, was my favourite "scumping" ground, we used to climb  the fence and pinch the apples.

My name is Colin Hunt and I may have a few snippets of information for you regarding the post-war Ritz. My dad, Bill Hunt was originally the Chief Projectionist of the Shaftesbury Cinema in Kingston Road in Portsmouth and was offered the post of chief at the Ritz which he took up mid 1960s? The Ritz, the Criterion Gosport, The Shaftesbury Portsmouth, the Palace Portsmouth and the Gaiety Portsmouth all belonged to a company called Portsmouth Town Cinemas. Many members of my family had been employed by the company over the years. (Added 17th May 2009)
