Memories of Folkestone
A little late I know, I just opened my Journal and was pleased to see a picture of our favourite local in YLJ Around the world in Folkestone, England (page 11).
We were in there the night my husband proposed to me75 years ago in 1942.
Hitler was busy but the pub on Bayle Street was saved. It was well known for Charles Dickens writing there.
We were married for 72 years and went home often.
I hope the young couple enjoyed their holiday. The old town has changed but is still lovely, a few miles from Dover, Canterbury, and London.
