More Southport Memories.......

The Kardomah Cafe in Southport was at 347-349 Lord St. It's now a Pizza Hut. The ladies in your photo are approaching the junction with Nevill St.


Hi All

Thanks for the restore Sylvia and bus destination close up!

Also I'm very grateful to Apwright and Tony for great detective work finding Lord st. Southport. I haven't been to Southport for a few years but if I remember right Lord st Shopping area has not changed since the Victorian times keeping the canopy fronts the same.


The reason why the photo is special ? was my mother met my father just after returning home from that holiday that summer in 1937 and married a few years later before dad went to war but never knew where she went on holiday.

Again thanks (Great work)

Southport Memories.........
Geoff has found some old family photo's, do have any you want to share?
If so drop me a line...

Dear Sir/Madam, I have just come across your site and was interested because my Grandmother used to be the Manageress in the Southport branch. She was called Elsie Lawton, and I recollect the staff always having to refer to her as Madam, and what a Madam she was.

Somewhere I have two photographs. One of the inside and another of the staff outside, with my Grandmother, when she was leaving. A date I am not aware of. The staff must have presented her with a small round silver case which we still have.

Jeff remembers.... Hi Just for the record there was a Kardomah in Little Wood Street off Clarence Street in Kingston Upon Thames in the 1970s/80s. I also think there was one in the King's Road, Chelsea, (opposite the Duke of York Army Barracks) in 1965. Keep up the good work, all aspects of a nations history are worth recording - and Kardomahs were such nice places and a lot more reasonable that Costa and Starbucks. Do you remember these branches? If so drop me line....
