More about Arthur Melbourne-Cooper & St Albans
Tjitte de Vries (L.) Marion Hammant (Centre) and Ati Mul (R.) met last Thursday in the Abbey Refectory to talk about Arthur Melbourne -Cooper and his link with the Alpha. As everyone in St Albans knows Marion has done much to help save the cinema and is now planning a conducted walk on the 20th June (see SACS site for more info) to show interested members of the public the sites associated with Melbourne-Cooper's career here.
Did you know know , for example, that Melbourne-Cooper's father's first photographic studio was in what is now the Chinese take-away on the corner of Watson's Walk? Or that M-C's logo was the Hertfordshire hart? It all just gets more and more local.
