We re-emerge back on the Thoroughfare having come down Swan Lane. We hear about the Swan Hotel and the questionable circumstances behind its purchase. Opposite is the site of a tobbaconists owned by the parents of one of our speakers, Norman Hart. Norman tells how the previous owner was kept in the business to give him some sense of purpose in his life and also the day when a motorbike and sidecar came crashing through the window.
