This is where the "Birth Marks Tent" is based, which was started many years ago by the great late Bill Cubin. As I write this the L & H Museum that Bill started is being re-housed in the Roxy Cinema just behind the Coro (Coronation Hall), Bill's Daughter Marion is now the curator and is helped by some of her family.The Coro is the center of Ulverston.The Birth Marks Tent hosted a superb L & H International Convention in and around the sleepy Market Town of Ulverston. People came from all round the Globe and the towns folk were never the same; boy did we wake up the town!
Stan of course was born in a little Terraced House in Argyle Street and the Ulverston Town Council put up a small plaque to mark the spot.
Dateline 10:15 hrs 1st April. This picture show some unsuspecting local folks waiting for the arrival of "The Boys" Bronze life-size sculpture.
