Sort of cosy place
Does anyone remember Terry’s Milk Bar in Upper St James’s Street? In the late 1950s it was a sort of cosy place where you could get a coffee and some chips for next to nothing. I was one of the lads that just hung around all day eating chips. The bloke who owned the place was a Canadian who was over the road in the pub most of the time. As I was there most of the time, Terry the owner would say “If anyone comes in pop over to the pub and give me a shout”.

Easy days: good fun
I did that for a while, and then I started just cooking simple grub instead of bothering Terry in the pub. I also served in an ad hoc fashion. It was fun; I had a good time, dossing around and eating. I also prepared rolls every morning for the Tyresole factory a few doors down. When I appeared the girls knew it was time for their tea break. Some of the older lads had motorbikes which they let me go for a spin on. They were easy days and good fun.
