Was just thinking there must have been many such pics taken over the years, but it was so long ago they are probably all stuffed away in peoples attics somewhere. Never been scanned and digitized or uploaded to the internet which is a shame. Maybe such a treasure trove of old Edmonton photos we've not yet seen will come to light one of these days.

I have spent quite a bit more time trying to find pics of the old arcade, but to no avail. If I do come across some I'll post on here.
The top photo is the full size of one that had been on here before and comes from the early 60's I believe.

Hi All

Thanks for trying to locate an inside the arcade picture, one may turn up one day.

I waited for years for the Inside of Knights lane baths and now have put that one to rest, nearly as I remember it.

Looking at the photo 3 years either side of 1962 should be very close

I have sent an email to quick topic about the lack of pictures. Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.

I do not recall ever seeing a photo of the inside of the market.I do remember an ice-cream stand at the green end and a butchers which sold horse meat and pet food at the new road end,one food for the dog was red heart.

For the young ones on here have a look. http://www.lookandlearn.com/history-images...d+Heart&bool=phrase

PETE - don't like your chances. As I remember that arcade it was always very dark and people tended to use it as a short cut from the Green to Empire Hill (and reverse) rather than to shop there.

Any pictures available of the indoor arcade leading up to the empire area, thanks in advance.

DAVE - Yes, my wife read about the road works on the Lincolnshire Echo site. Just a fact of modern life. We have some major road works going on here, too. Traffic is a frustration as a result but we know we will benefit in the long run. The fires here are out due mainly to the efforts of the firefighters plus a change in the weather which has brought much lower temperatures and prolonged rain (so very welcome at this time of year). However, there are now serious fires in Western Australia where again the temps have been way up. Shocking news from France. I just can't comprehend what these REALLY motivates these terrorists. I think it is not all down to religous differences whatever it is. Will we ever learn to live in peace and harmony?

I do not get on here as much as I used to, I do however have a quick butchers to see that all is well. For some strange reason since I retired in 2013 I just don't seem to get the spare time anymore!! I gather that not only has Adelaide got the fire problems but, high winds and storms and all this with temperatures that we can't imagine here in The UK. If I recall, Colin your wife comes from Lincoln, well we will be doing battle shortly with the traffic here. There is major road works going on at Canwick Hill / South Park and it is causing utter chaos, the road's are down to one lane with traffic backing up a long way. At one junction it used to be three lane (two turning right, one straight on) now it is only one lane - that road is the main road out of Lincoln. Are well, only five months of it!!!

Hi Colin, I was glad to read from your previous post that you and your's are safe from those devastating fires.
I may not write very often but I do enjoy reading other members posts.
