The Nuneaton Trouser
We made our first foray into Nuneaton on Monday, taking advantage of the sunshine whilst it lasted. Why were we pleasantly surprised? Somehow our expectation had been set rather low. We found a broad selection of shops, some interesting architecture an amazing bargain on Antler suitcases at the Co-op department store and a refreshment kiosk serving all-milk coffee (not made with Camp to produce the ultimate nostalgic drink, unfortunately).
The Scala Theatre illustrates a remarkable optimism on the part of the people of Nuneaton: It was built in 1914.
In this elegant 1930s building we found some Antler suitcases at 25% of original price just in time for She who must be obeyed to pack for her trip to S Africa.
Is this another incidence of illiteracy or sharp practice by offering half a pair of trousers for half price?
