Memories: 'It used to give me nightmares'

By Martin Nimmo

I still have an old photograph from about 1956, with my younger brother Richard (then five) and myself and my mother and Granny, standing on the steps down to the Aquarium. It was quite a frightening place in those days, very dark with small tanks of tropical fish, and the awful expectation at the end of the trip of gazing down into the dark tank with the crocodiles (or alligators?) in it. It used to give me nightmares to think of them!
