Recognized the name Cyril Cooper, he was my Great Uncle, here's a photo - might jog a few memories
Not the Cyril Cooper who rode for the Bees, judging by the phot..............?

Searching Google maps for Philip on the Exhall topic, I noticed that there are a couple of fishing lakes close to Hawkesbury Lane, lakes I did not even know existed. It got me wondering if there are any fishermen / women on the forum? I have been this afternoon for 5 hours and had a great time.

One of the best shops in its day was Billy Lane's Tackle in Much Park Street. On my introduction to fishing in 1962, I spent a lot of time there. Post copied from topic Shops of yore on 15th Sep 2021 2:01 pm

I never went fishing, but I remember a fishing tackle shop on the Radford Road, opposite the Radford pub. It was in a row of Victorian buildings which were demolished. The site became a petrol station, now a carwash.
