John Edward Cooper’s Notes

HomeContentsAlphabetical listingWhom I’d like to meet in eternity…

Friday 15th April 1966


In the NOTES section is a note:

See woman about
I don’t remember who this 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
and 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.

          Friday evening
Dear John
       Thanks for your
letter. I’ve sent the number
to Butlins.
       I’ll be coming home
on Monday, not today as
expected, as I’ve a little bit of
business to attend to tonight that
cropped up, unexpected.
       See you then, Luv Chris

“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.
