Croydon was never the same after they closed the Blue Orchid.

I used to work in Beanos, years ago. Do you remember the old indoor market? I think it was on Park Street? And the T-shirt place opposite West Croydon bus station tbat used to sell alk the heavy metal T-shirts and patches, I forget the name of it now.

i see the Riots as a turning point for Croydon. The scandalous burning of Reeves corner and all that.

Either those riots will see Croydon rise from the ashes or they will turn it into another backwater. It may take a decade or two to know the answer.

Moved out of croydon 5yrs ago and am now in the 10th happiest place.
have to say although I miss the old haunts I'm glad I moved as it has gone downhill.

You mean in shops? Used to go in there a lot and help out in the record shop there.
The chinese at the back weren't bad.

Lot of women there.

No, years before Inshops (though I do remember that I used to live opposite, above the comic shop and I used to go to that record shop), I'm talking mid to late eighties I think.

I've had a look at the map and I think it was where Bad Apple is now (incidentally, that looks like a horrendous place) on Park Street.

I've got a feeling it might have burnt down in the end, but that maybe somewhere else I'm thinking about.

Yeah The Indoor Market was mid 80s and opposite the gay pub The Croydon. Quite brave to have a gay place in somewhere like Croydon in 1983 ish. Even Brighton was just starting to be pink friendly back then.
