Victory ClubFollowing renovation of the former Robins Corner Café now Les Harker's Corner Cafe on corner of West Parade and Queen Street (TOP) there are more projects in Queen Street. The other photo was taken today and shows work in progress at the Victory Club (No.60).

A similar job is scheduled at the Adelphi (No.66, to your right of the Victory). Around 1960 as a schoolboy I worked a couple of summer seasons behind the range at the Adelphi, which was then a fish & chips restaurant with waitress service. The proprietor was the late Mr. Vernon Trehearn of Savoy Enterprises.

Another Queen Street premises due for a facelift is the takeaway named The Godfather (No.28) where I’m sure they make you a pizza you can’t refuse.
