Notes / History Hoards of youngsters have enjoyed paddling and hunting for small fish and snails in the waters of Three Kings Pond. The shallow area near the edge was particularly popular and a variety of jam jars and nets on cane poles were used for dipping.

Notice the car showroom in the background – this picture was taken in 1958 when mass production of cars and scooters made vehicles increasingly affordable.
