I think it was, 'Give him the money, Mabel,' Mabel being Wilfred's wife.

Violet Carsons later became Ena Sharples in coronation st.

A newspaper article awhile back said the midwife was filmed in Chatham dockyard.
I don't know anything about poplar in the fifties but did they really used to hang their washing out in the street,like they did in the midwife programme?

Thanks for that link Alf. Now I know why I don't need a stream of filthy, swearing, vulgar language to make me laugh!

Hi Nan .. Hope you are well? I can think of one place ..the moorings in prince regent where  all the flats were built around a square  where this  happened.
They had no gardens so all the washing  was  strung across  the courtyard.
This probably what was portrayed  in call the midwife.
Regards Ron.

One of my fondest memories would be from the early 1960s. My older sister had just started to see a young man who had a Vauxhall car (can't remember which model). The only time my mum would allow my sister to go out in it was if her little brother (me), went with them. I remember being driven around Stratford Broadway and the Grove while listening to the old radio playing Telstar by the Tornados. I loved the sense of optimism and excitement of that time, we hadn't quite reached the swinging 60s but we could see it coming.

Great, Happy times, although I don't think my sister would agree..............

Talking about old programmes, I've been watching Arthur Haynes with Nicolas Parsons. It may not be quite the period under discussion, but I thought it was very funny, as funny as Death Till Us Part, in my opinion. Written by Johnny Speight a brilliant Canning Town boy!!
