Councilor Marjorie Fisher, Mayer of Kirklees.
The Bistro was officially opened by the Mayor.

Marjorie told Johnny that when she was a young trolly bus conductor she would call in at the blacksmiths shop just below the Bistro to get warm while waiting for the trolly bus.

COMPUTER meals have arrived in town- thanks to Huddersfield nightspot owners Johnny and Joe Marsden.

But steak and chips will still taste the same with the fitting of the latest space age technology in his Rosemary Lane Bistro.
A £1500 computer terminal and print-out machines have been introduced to work out the bills and meal orders.

Now all the waiter has to do is punch out lunch on a video screen and the message is quickly relayed to the chef.
Johnny and Joe saw the system working in Chicago and decided it was just what they needed in the Bistro where, because of the building design, the kitchen is upstairs.

The system has been installed with the help of Mr Fallah Abod, a research assistant at Huddersfield Polytechnic, who has programmed the computer.  A simple code system allows waiters to communicate the order in double-fast time and the details are stored to print-out the bill at the end of the meal. “I think we must be one of the first restaurants in the country to adopt this system” said Johnny.
Restaurant manager Paul Pearce is pictured with the new computer.
