No mention of the Gardens then? <_<

Come to think of it "Peace Gardens" is a rubbish name.

It makes it sound like a cemetry.

“The South Yorkshire Norsemen left this planet and mutated millions of years ago and one of the songs is about them loading up the spacecraft for them to travel back to earth, to help the children. The aliens still follow Viking culture and worship all the old Gods,” says Somerset, to whom all this makes perfect sense.

and I thought I was weird sometimes !!!!

My apologies in advance, this is about the most appalling piece of twaddle as I've come across in a long time.

The Devil Man

Edgar Wallace (1931)

Featuring one Mr Peace, I've been to about page 80; nothing of interest happens and there are a lot of silly names ...

£7.99 !

Mine is already ordered ...

The Case of Charles Peace, a 1949 John Argyle Production made at Merton Park Studios, released by Monarch. This film is based on a true story, nicely directed by Norman Lee and it is a minor gem not because it won awards, had a great cast or a huge budget, but because it’s a small British production that entertains.

Lead Michael Martin Harvey, a relative unknown and as a mixture of Robin Hood and the devil, is oddly hypnotic in the role. The film very cleverly recounts the exploits through the trial of Charles Peace. The film has been restored to a good quality.

This drawing shows just where Mr & Mrs Dyson lived at Banner Cross, the Estate Agents now occupies the building,  where the Crystal Barbers now sits was the gennel up which Charlie Peace escaped, if you look close the barbers has different building features to the rest of Banner Cross Terrace, it looks as though it was just wedged in. The row of terraced houses, now long gone were on Harrington Road that ran along the back of the Earl of Arundel pub on Shoreham Street, it was a terraced house like one of these that Mrs Dyson was living in at the time of Peace`s trial.

Chapeltown. My childhood home had a cartoon drawing under all the wallpaper with "Charlie Peace is a murderer" - the infamous criminal who died in the 1870s I think.
