The Peak Cafe,1953-54

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1954

Here is a very nice photo taken at the Peak Cafe, sometime in 1953 or '54. Having read "Golden Boy", it is altogether possible that Martin Booth was inside at that very moment, cadging a Coke from a US Serviceman.

At any rate, this is a rare, close-up photo of this place,which seems to have scarcely changed from when I ate lunch there 19 years later,in 1972. From this point in time, I can no longer remember if I sat at one of these tables outside, or went inside.

"The Bluff" on Gough Hill Road The Peak RBL 25 - Circa 1971

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1971

I believe in 1971 when I took this photo that "The Bluff" (RBL 25) was The West German Consulate. It was just up Gough Hill Rd from Lysholt, The Chief Justice's House, and Clavadel where my family lived from 1970 through 1973.

It is now "under" the 28 Gough Hill Road development, completed in 2004, which is described as a "Prestigious development located on the Peak with 6 detached house units" by Carrot Home who were responsible for the Home Automation at that development.
