Hi crazynan,
Yes I remember the arcade in King Street, a friend of mine worked there, her name was Margaret, she had blonde hair, she and her husband used to have a drink with my wife and I in the pub I think it was called the Brittania on the Bridge over the canal, I think her Father was the Landlord.
