    I have lived on Lido since I bought my house on Garfield in 1992. I have been contacted by the man who lived in my (now) house as a boy in 1958+ (when it was built). He has sent me some great photographs (Lido Casino) and postcards (like new, the old causeway) from the Lido Casino, Ringling Bros. (i.e. a bear on a ball) etc. He would like these to to make their way into a collection to be shared with all.

    Please advise if you can help.
