I wept to see that the Corner Shop has been destroyed by the tram crash for the 50th anniversary. It was the place where the very first scene was set in 1960. What are these people doing to Corrie? Jean Alexander asked Brian Park why he was destroying Corrie in 1997 - but now things are so much worse.
It's certainly a strong story-line, Justin! I'm sorry you wept to see the Corner Shop destroyed. It does hold many fond memories, and was one of the original meeting places (The Rovers being the other) when the show began.
The Corner Shop was transformed by Alf Roberts into a mini market in 1985.
Only this blog would feature a post about Victor Pendlebury's resemblance to Stan Ogden! As Corrie blogs go, yours is quirky, insightful and unique. Keep it up!
Claire, I really appreciate your kind words. Thank you. And I enjoy writing the blog so I intend to keep it going!
Where do you get all your screen grabs from?
I have a lot of 1970s episodes, Gavin, from Granada Plus and 1980s episodes from Canadian TV broadcasts. Some of the '80s discs are in a sorry state, so it's taking me lots of time to transfer them to playable discs, but once I have there'll be lots more screen caps.
