The "Hitler doing the Lambeth Walk" video brought back memories of when I was a teenager. I had been feeling quite depressed and this was played on the telly - I laughed like a drain!

I noticed The Lambeth Walk pub on Lambeth Rd has been converted to flats!! End of an era, etc etc

I was told when I was a child that I was related to Lupino Lane who did the original Lambeth Walk. I remember being taken backstage and introduced by my grandmother to one of the Lupino family who had been playing Wishy or Washy at an Exeter pantomime in the nineteen forties, but don't know my precise relationship to the family.

Have a look at, Lots of wonderful footage on a multitude of subjects from the past. If you type, 'Lupino Lane' in to the search box there are a few bits of footage on him, including when he opened the 'Lambeth Walk' pub, mentioned above and sadly no more.

Cheers Chalkey, will do. Have googled Lupino family, which seems to consist of two halves but no luck with establishing a connection. Will look at the pathe site, ta.
