[b][i]Many thanks for photo of the old Met, never realised it was so BIG, it looks like nearly 5 floors high, it must have been a big fire that wiped it out, surprised Ceder Street survived it,

Hiya BB, thanks for replying to my posts in big bold words, or is it called italic writing? :wink: :)

Joe, that picture of door size hardboard in Taskers 7/9, made me smile.
That sheet would cost £11.00 in B&Q today :shock: Ken
