Just been re-reading this post, Brenda on your post #85 the crock shop was Heaths, I had a number of items from there including two china prancing horses I think they were 12/6d each - going back a bit to the 1950s. Our wedding was conducted by Canon Warman in 1957.
Sylvia, thanks for the name of the "croc shop" of course it was Heaths....mom and l both paid into the club so we were able to afford our china wear....the morning my second son Kurt was born the post office delivered a box and what a nice surprise mom and sent me a china tea service from Heaths....l still have a few pieces left it was white with yellow roses on it and will always cherish it.....Sylvia hope Canon Warman had the right shoes on when you got married ....l still smile about that incident on our wedding day......Brenda

This photo taken on Sunday, 25 March 1906 shows Aston Bridge just as it had been erected. It weighed 300 tons and was placed into position within 15 minutes so as to prevent traffic delays. These are local people checking out the new bridge. Viv.
