Turn off London Road and into Ducie Street, it’s just around the corner from Piccadilly Station.
Enter a world of warehouses, homes and industry.
Return some fifty years later and you’ll find a café on the corner.
Return last Saturday you’ll find that it’s gone.
No more of this.
Top class scran at prices to suit all pockets.
Linda and her crew have packed up the pans and scrammed.

The face of the city changes, as one by one faces and places disappear, new build and mass tourism making ever new demands on space.
The rag trade is in tatters and the tatters are long gone.
It would seem that there is no place for the traditional café or its customers.
So thank you and goodnight, the last pie, chips and gravy has left the counter.
Shut the door and turn out the lights.
