I recall the premises to the right of the former cinema as a sweet shop in the early '50's.

The Theatre Royal on Adam Street was once the venue for the Cub Group Ran by a Mrs. Barlow.On the onset she would seat herself on the stage.In chalk she would write BARLOW.Every boy present would then place pennys upon the letters.In an an attempt to complete her name. This never happened .most boys could ill afford the Cap and Jersey required. not forgetting the woggle.but I certainly enjoyed attending
In 1946 goole took delivery of D type Fairmile741 which was a wooden Motor Torpedo/Gun Boat for the Goole Sea Cadets It was aptly named HMS Honeysuckle after the Corvette which the people of Goole bought for the war effort.
As the Fairmile D was my favourite craft during the war.I made many models.but never became a Cadet
She was sold in 1957 to become one of many which became homes along the estuaries

The Cinema Palace started life with a fantastic art deco frontage, only later for some unknown reason it was altered to a more moderate looking frontage.Then to be pulled down to make way for a Super market.

I remember next door to the Carlton Was Radio Rentals,when we moved up a notch from going to Richardson in Pasture road for our accumulator to be recharged,we had Radio Rentals put in the new Radio with the controls hid behind the curtains,I seem to remember that wee only had two channels, my sister and I came out of the Carlton to see the fire engine racing by we chased after it and followed it to our house,our chimney was on fire.

The Cosy Carlton pulled down ages ago, but still remains a pile of rubble, I wonder how long it will be before a new building is erected.
