Dave asks via e-mail if the cat featured in our header pic is really Minnie Caldwell's Bobby?
Yes, Dave, although it's not Toby, the original Bobby, but, I believe, the second cat to take the role, used from the late 1960s onwards. I'm not sure how many Bobbys there were in total!
I got the Bobby image from this pre-printed Margot Bryant Corrie card, which was sent to me by Granada Television not long before Minnie departed from the Street in 1976.
