DrB, where did you find the first picture (Battersea...)? It's now a Chinese takeaway called "Wok this way" and does a very good roast duck in orange sauce.

And, as if by magic, here it is!



Looking at it, that must be a different place. The buildings either side are different.

There must be 2 and I know exactly where the other one is. Next time I'm there I will get a picture then they will be famous too.

Interesting, though, that this place & the chip shop appear about the same size.

Oh I do. If they have pictures of people snogging on the front then I don't read them.

No the opposite. Can't stand all these forceful men and all these whimpy women.

There was a West Indies bowler called Michael Holding and English batsman Peter Willey. The BBC commentator calling the game said "the batsman’s Holding,... the bowler’s Willey”  :D :D :D

The commentator in question being, I believe, the inimitable Jonners.

On the subject of which, John Arlott's classic:-

"And there's Tony Gregg, standing in the slips with his legs apart waiting for a little tickle"

There was certainly something similar. It couldn't, though, have been how you put it as Willey & Dilley both played for England whereas Lillee was Australian. Maybe Lillee, caught Willy, bowled Dilley? (ooh, tht sounds even worse!)

With names in mind, Dr Spooner would have been is serious trouble had he every lectured on myths & legends. A lecture on the legend of Robin Loxley would have been OK when referring to him as Robin Hood, which would have come out as 'Hoodin Rob', Little John also would have been OK as 'Jittle Lon', but Friar Tuck would have landed him in serious bother with the 'Quear old Deen'.

There was a shoe shop in Greenwich called 'R - Soles'. Boring council took objection and had the owner re-name it.

Also in Greenwich was a shop called 'No Ikea'. Ikea objected to that.
