I remember trickeys, they were two brothers who lived in Princess street, their shop was in the main street and had a trap door that led downstairs where it was rumoured they had an illegal betting den. They had one of the first powerful telescopes  that I can remember and one brother would go up the mountain and hold up a halfcrown and the other one could see it through the telescope. Their surname was Williams.

It was called a coke float .

Going into Andrews cafe was like going back in time the counter run from the door to the back room with a bench seat and small tables running along it . His counter held any sweet you could wont and as a child it was heaven. In the back room the tables and chairs were set.  Used to go in there if you missed the bus and had a coke float and my mother her cup of tea.
Are those were the days. ( caught up on the gossip too)
