In the NOTES section is a note:
woman was, nor why I wanted to see her about her husband. Perhaps she was a contact I’d made on the knocker on Tuesday.
This was the first day in 1966 for which I wrote no actual diary-entry.Chris sent me a picture postcard, with a colour photo of Riby Square, Grimsby, at the top of which he wrote SCHH! YOU KNOW WHERE! The card is postmarked with the slogan
MARINELAND & ZOOand GRIMSBY & CLEETHORPES, LINCS 3.45 PM 15 APR 1966. The view of Riby Square is interesting because it was later radically altered by the demolition of Barclays Bank for the construction of an ugly overpass carrying the road over the railway line; at the time of the photo there was a level crossing beyond the pictured buildings.
“Schh—! You know where!” was a play on a long-running series of TV ads for Schweppes soft drinks, whose catch-phrase was “Schh—! You know who!”
I’ve sent the number off: See Sunday 23rd January 1966 for more information.
