Oh. What memories this building has. Behind the long row of windows was the Court School of Dancing where I met my 1st husband and of course did plenty of Courting in the Ritz pictures. I also remember seeing Tommy Steele perform there as well.

I saw Billy Fury (my idol) in the Ritz. Outside the Ritz was a popular meeting point too in those days. Yes, brings back memories!

I worked every saturday morning as a monitor at ABC minors.

oh what happy days, even managed to see The Houghton Weavers and Five penny Piece perform their, even though I was quite underage to attend such concerts..

Many memories, I did a lot of growing up working there.
