  • I remember being in that back room with my then girlfriend, a Student Nurse named Sue from Harlow Wood Hospital, sometime around 1968. We were the only ones in there, but we got told off for snogging.

  • When I was courting (does that still happen or is it now a click on the Internet?) in the ‘60s, I always went to the back room of the Dial before or after the cinema or a dance in town. We were slightly! under age but no id was ever requested. I’ve no idea what I would have produced, probably a school bus pass.
    My drink of choice was a bottle of Forest Brown. My wife to be, a Calypso I think. Do those still exist? Happy days.
