People dance the night away at Standish Social Club in the late 1950s. Do you recognise anyone.

That's a great piece of social history. Kids enjoying themselves at the beginning of a new era in music and the age of the teenager begins.

Just caught a glimpse of the old Gramophone. Non of your twin decks or fancy stuff. Distinct lack of disco lights as well.
