PARADISE SQUARE

Sounds like a good time was had by all in May 1935 at this party on Newbridge St, renamed ‘Paradise Square’ for the occasion.Newbridge Street no longer looks like this but it still runs alongside Whittington Hill.Many families lived on this street and the Loomes family was one of them. Robert Loomes fought in WW1 and came home injured and lived on Newbridge Street for many years whilst his brother Christopher , who was awarded the DCM, was killed later in the war but his widow continued to live on Newbridge Street.
