Who remembers the old restaurants, Charlie Brown's and Hard Times Cafe?

Remember the buffets at Calverts Hotel and the Sunday lunches at Swainston Manor?

Thanks to Darcy Homan, who was on work experience with us, for taking these photos from the County Press archive.

The County Press has been published since 1884 and now offers adverts online as well as in print.
