Circa 1960 my aunt was one of the ladies who lunched at Schofields and Lewis's restaurants and would sometimes take me for a treat in the school holidays.
My recollection of Schofields was that you walked in from the street through an open door which used a blast of air to separate the interior and external atmospheres. It was a glimpse of modernity in a city which still looked pre-war.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!
