Re: Five more images

I remember the Savoy, waiting almost 6 hours just to get to see Grease. Shame it was pulled down, and also the church, I think they are still trying to sell the land the church was on.

get well soon Hartman!

monkeys island was more central to the little beach, we used to jump off it when the tide was in. They eventually removed it, Monkeys island used to be a place where they tied boats up back in the 'old' days, My nanna told me along time ago.
