My Dad's Diary : Sat 4th January 1947

"Saw Gateshead beat Lincoln 3-0.

Couldn't get into pictures at night so had short walk."

Simple pleasures. At the bottom of the page is a little printed motto:

"A little 'ginger' is good for all of us."

These one line entries are, as you say very much of their time! Having said that - just last month I couldn't get in to see a film ('Arrival" on a Friday night) because it was sold out. Don't happen often!

It's a long time since I couldn't get in, but I do remember when I was a lad long queues for popular films and eventually giving up.
