Williamson Square

The 'wheel of fortune'

This memory is in:

"Williamson Square, that was where the Playhouse is now, and there used to be a little taxi place there. There was a kiosk for the taxi drivers to get a cup of tea and what not. It was like a hut, it was alright. Then just behind the hut was a public convenience for gentlemen only and it had two staircases going down each side of it and it was round inside so that’s why it was called the 'wheel of fortune'. A lot of people used to go in there looking to see if they could find a rich sugar daddy! And they’ll have got a fortune out of him, hopefully, but no one ever did."
