I remember when I was in the forces, arriving in England from Cyprus/Suez
and travelling home to Manchester in the December of 1956. The damp mist in
the station. The smoke from the trains billowing along the platform and up
around the roof and the foot bridge. The condensation running down the cafe
window, its tiled walls wet with moisture. But most of all the big bowl of
sugar on the counter top and the single tea spoon with a six foot chain
hanging from it, it was chained to the counter in case someone stole it :)))
Those were the days.
