Reminiscences of times in pubs – the often warped story of my life in flashbacks.

I’ve just heard that the pub that hosted my infamous going away party at the end of July 1967 prior to me emigrating to Canada is up for sale and may well be torn down for development.

There are not many pictures to be found on the internet, but here are those I’ve managed to collect.
