This is from a thread about old cafes on here years ago. 

 

 

Anyone remember the Disc Jockey on London Road ? Very popular for a long time in the late '50's and early '60's.Owned by Harry Hart at some stage. He had been [or later became ?] the landlord of the Red Lion at the back of the City Hall. He later got the Sidewalk on Chapel Walk ---another fantastic meeting place in the '60's.

Big Harry Brown was another G , I worked with him , we never had a break or dinner time , keep going 8 hours a day . I think the builder was Peter Proctor or Dennis Ledger from Dronfield .

Harry Hart also owned the wallpaper shop almost next to the Sidewalk Cafe on Chapel Walk.
