    The bloody sidewalk out there was so hard!

    The one I often frequented was the Manchester Hotel, not far from the Grand. Had a great restaurant on ther first floor the food was very good and the waiters very friendly and obliging. Got me out of trouble on a couple of occasions.

    hi E M. spent my 21st birthday in the bar of the playhouse. it had a roof and the interior was of stars, including a cloud or two.picked up a nice young lady in there. treated myself to a very old napoleon brandy which cost, i think about five bob;.
    a bottle of cheap brandy cost about the same at the time.
