Did'nt see Oil Drum Lane.

Postby steve sheffield » Thu Mar 12, 2009 9:11 pm

Went to see my team Sheffield United play QPR at Loftus road in Shepherds Bush on saturday and had a good look around while there.
I was amazed to see place-names that I recognise from watching Steptoe and son.
I had a drink in a pub on the Goldhawk road, and from the episode "The desperate hours" I saw a road-sign with Scrubbs Lane directions on it. Also had a walk down in Shepherds Bush market. I could'nt help but think that I might be walking in the footsteps of Harry and Wilfred. Unfortunately I did'nt see Oil drum lane.
For a steptoe and son fanatic it was a great away ground for me to visit watching my team.

Hi Steve
Sounds like you had a good ol day. Glad you didn't bump into Frankie and his mob, mind, down that market you probarly did, from my experiance they all seemed like Frankie's.
Hope you got plenty of photos for your album.

Another note: was it you that was looking for a really good copy of the Kenco advert?
Got hold of a great copy the other day, along with loads of old T.V. ads spanning the 60s, 70s, 80s, it's amazing how they take you back. 3 hours in total, might consider copying them if any one wants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who remembers the avert with Leonard Rossiter as a traffic warden? Think I've even got Aitch Fielder in a Guiness ad. (any thoughts Aitch)

Haven't been about much (hospital, back op etc) cor don't look like I missed much though, seems like the forum's been like a ghost town, where is every-one?

Cheers, Colin

Quiz

Postby frenchy » Sat Mar 14, 2009 12:29 am

Hi Charlie.

I did have the questions set up for a March Quiz, but what with the op and that, I thought i'd now use them for April instead.

Must give you your answers from the last one.

I will say I was a little bit surprised that more people didn't have a go at the last one. In total I had five players of which only you and Julie were from this site.
I'll see how the next one runs then consider it's furture.

Nearly finished a couple more scripts, i'll add them soon.

DOES ANY-ONE REMEMBER THE LATE 60s EARLY 70s SITCOM ...'THE DUSTBIN MEN'....????

Cheers
Colin :lol:

Sussed it,
Every-ones at Mrs Boxwood's boarding house. Lovely views, right on the seafront. They have a bathroom on every floor.
She serves up lovely grub, a right plateful.
It only takes 3 minutes by Concorde to get there from Heathrow.
Lucky so and so's.
Bognor, here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
