Regal Edmonton

I expect you've had replies already, but yes, The hedly Ward Trio were performing there that night. Cliff Richard and Bruce Forsythe were in the audience. HWT were superb and when Jerry Lee came on the audience wanted them back.

A couple of days before the concert the news about JLL marrying his 14 year old cousin hit the headlines and the audience gave him a very hard time.

Hi Brian,

Glad you remembered the good old days. We had so much fun then. Edmonton is not the same any more. It has been some time since i have been on this site. Micky Walters sounds familiar to me also. I have lost contact with everyone I grew up with in England, but that's life. Let me know what is happening over there. Did you ever know a Michael Richer. He was in a judo club and evidently pretty good.

Keep in touch. Tanks

Jennifer (Trueman) Ebeck

Tue Jan 27

OMG Brian. It has been couple years since I was on this site. I believe I knew Micky Walters. Wasn't he a judo champ of some thing. Would love to connect with him also, if possible. Would love to put my e-mail address on here, but am a little scared about that. Maybe I should open up another one just just for this.

Hope you reply. Take Care

Edmonton 1950 ......+

I went to Eldon Road school. Headmaster Mr Harvey, Mr & Mrs Kemp, a teacher who married a Pakistani and had two ceremonies. She gave all her pupils copies of the photos. My friends, Rowena Jacobs, Martin(I was in love with ) Duncan with a runny nose, Sandra, blonde and freckled, Denise who shared a room and bed with me in Belgium on the school holiday....More than one Susan and Christine, a ball room dancer who went to Latymer. Ena Thatcher....A boy who disappeared and did not come back to school, a boy who was impaled on a fence but survived, Janet who went to the grammar with me. Parry, a fellow welsh person but rude as all boys were at the time to a foreign looking person with a welsh accent.

Seeing Billie Davis and the Stones in an early concert, lying to my parents about where I went that night.......

Rock & Roll

I lived in the Off Licence in Montagu Road 1944-1971, the one on the corner of Jones scrap yard.

Imperial Hall once had Little Richard, and of course Edmonton Regal for Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley maybe Buddy. I still support the great era of the rockin' 1950s.
