I remember seeing lots of Silvercross Prams in the shop.

BygoneMedway, Prefabkid has a photo of the Plaza cinema, you can just see to the right of the cinema a shop, which was Babyland and may have still been Babyland when the photo was taken.

Hope this helps,

Colin.

Many thanks.

The shop was right next door to the Plaza cinema towards the Railway Station end.

I'm sure I recognise her! As soon as I saw the pic, the name Joy (Riddle?) popped into my head, but it's an awful long time since I left school which is where I knew her from. I'd guess the pic was taken about 1964/66 ish, we bought our 'continental' pushchair there in 1966,  but I don't remember knowing any shop staff then.

This photo was taken at Babyland in Duncan Road, Gillingham. Anyone know who the girl on the right is and what year it was taken?  Long shot I know but I have seen the way you members track down the answers on some posts. Impressive stuff.

Sorry for keep asking for help rather than adding to the forum. I won`t always be doing the asking. Promise  :)

Anyway here is the picture. Many thanks.
