Going to Chester was a great treat when I was little. The Rows always fascinated me. I also remember Browns - that was a posh shop in my day

I'll agree with you on both those counts, Gadget.  A wonderful place!  Not to mention my birthplace!

Me too. I still think the Rows are great - a unique feature; a good place to stop and people watch the streets below.
It's gone down the nick and a bit jaded these days with, would you believe, lots of empty shops. Browns was my mum's favourite shop "back in the day". People still call it Browns, except it ain't.
I don't go to Chester these days unless I have to. My dentist and favourite Italian eatery are there so I am able to combine to combine the two.

Yes, going into Browns of Chester was like walking into Harrods for us. The Rows were a fascinating place - yes! You could imagine a Sherlock Holmes story being set there. Very unique. I used to have my film and prints developed by mail order there, to "Will R. Rose".

Wall City Jazz Club in Chester was also a favourite visit.  I'm sure that is where I first saw Acker Bilk and Chris Barber.  That would be late 1950's/early 1960's when I was lodging in Runcorn - problem is I can't remember how we travelled to and from  :-[

Sorry I'm digressing even further from the original post  :-X
