Varsity Sketch: A Debate at the Union

1943:

In 2020 Marinna recalled that as a little girl, when an evacuee living in Park Street, she would go to the corner of the street behind the Union on Saturday evenings where dances were held. The local children called it ‘Pennies From Heaven’ Corner because people would come out onto the balcony and throw coins.
