A Question . . .
I was just about to start an item on the PUBS Thread, about some pubs I used to visit years ago that are no longer with us, when I thought - The Pubs thread is great for all the current chat and news about what's going on NOW, but sometimes peoples memories can get a bit lost on there.
So I thought, what about a "Pubs of the Past" thread??
It works well with the RETAIL thread . . . there is now also the separate Retail Memories thread.
How about the same for PUBS - what do people think?
Great idea NH - go for it, I assume this also refers to pubs which have changed their names, i.e. pub still there but under a different name (heinous as that is!)
Yes Steve, any aspect of "Pubs of the Past" that you like! Stupidly re-named pubs are a great annoyance to me too.
So, here is the new thread, started on 30th April 2012, but a fair number of posts from before that date have initially been pulled into the thread - so there's already a bit of a backdated story about our old pubs in here!
Even this "opening post" has been backdated!!
SO, lets kick off with a trip back to that mythical pub from the 1970s, The Geordie Pride . . .
