Any thoughts about Leamington Cricket club Biscuit Tin? did anyone ever talk about the recreation ground having been a cricket ground?
there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand ternary, those that don't and those that think this a joke about the binary system.

Not to my knowledge, but a few have suggested the link between the names.

I am really amazed by all this, I thought my past was a long time buried. I asked a question Monday this week and since then my past is back, I have a picture of the house I grew up in and can almost trace my steps to school - Ingram Road and then Matthew Murray!!

Will you keep you informed should I find out anything regarding the cricket link.

Here's the 1890 map showing the cricket ground. It's where Domestic Road crosses Ingram Road today. At the left side of the map, there is the Mill Green Goit, which perhaps is where the name comes from when it changes later on.

Which direction past the goit, to the left? Not sure if I can post a bigger version on here as it seems to resize it automatically. I could email you the jpg if that's a better option.

Hi Biscuit-Tin

not sure of Photo date , but if you look closely at one of them there is what appears to be a vespa or Lambretta scooter parked in the street semi covered with a ( plastic? ) sheet. I would guess at a rough date of early sixties as motor bikes seemed to be more of a fifties thing, scooters the sixties, but no later than 1969 as this area was demolished about this time to make way for Domestic street industrial estate.

Hi Biscuit Tin
according to my mother, the "lemmy" did indeed exist
I think these two links may be of use.

my pleasure Phill-d
the thing I love about this site is that you can recreate a history of your own city thats not a million years in the past. it's fairly recent and a lot of people from that past are still here who can verify things. For example whilst Leodis may have no reference to the "Lemmi" there are people still around who can supply another reference, more valid, ie croydon street Barktson Terrace etc and with luck the thing you seek may be tagged on somewhere along the line.
Some of the postings (Drapsies pub stuff and your own industrial pics especialy) have made Me look twice at where I live.

regards Tabby
