This week, I’ve been very impressed with a group that came to my attention on Facebook. It’s called ‘You’re probably from Lichfield, Staffs if…‘ and is curated by Facebook user David Gallagher. It’s rare that Facebook throws anything up that’s so damned wonderful, but I have to say, both David and the group contributors are generating and discussing a wealth of memories of Lichfield. There are a huge quantity of great photos and memories being discussed. I’ve been looking for photos of the old Lichfield shopping precinct for a while, with that curious water feature. I’ve spent considerable amount of time perusing the group in the last week, and I recommend it to anyone who knows Lichfield. I’m featuring some of the pictures here to hopefully encourage readers to go and check the group out.
One thing would make it complete, however. Both myself and Kate from Lichfield Lore have mentioned before the Monterey Exchange pub – what is now the Bowling Green, and the days it was painted pink as an American theme bar. I remember the radio adverts from the late eighties. Does anyone have a photo of it, please?
