  • I was told by my father that our family ran the Buckingham Palace in Middle Row. His father was Acres Buckingham (known to his friends and associates as “cutie”) who opened a hairdressers shop at 102 high street around 1901 (A. Buckingham and sons) later run by his sons Reg (my father) and Ernie. I would be fascinated to know what relation Acres was to John Buckingham as it’s likely that I was named after him.

    John Buckingham.
