    Quite a character.

    Default Flying Dutchman pub

    Yo all.
    First post on this vibrant site and unfortunately I'm on the cadge.
    Does anyone have any info on the Flying Dutchman pub that was located in Canning Place? There's surprisingly little about this pub considering it was in a town centre location.

    On page one of this thread there is a picture of the King Edward pub in Roberts Street that looks so very familiar I feel I have stepped back 30 odd yrs.....is it off Old Hall Street opp what was my hospital (DL NORTHERN)..if so I spent many a happy night in there....I can almost smell the atmosphere and picture the landlord/lady ...so convenient to pop into after a late shift....could even go in alone and know you would get a warm welcome being a nurse..learnt to play a mean game of darts there......18yrs old me and me drinking buddies were..only we didnt drink the hard stuff..soft drinks and a warm hot pie made/served by the landlady.....so many memories I have a tear in my eye.....unless of course its not my pub then I am jabbering incoherently.....

    I used to have a quiet drink in the Carters Arms when I lived in Kirkby in the 60's. It was the type of pub you could take your Mum to,no music just quiet conversation. Just along the road from it was the Railway,an all together different kettle of fish. The back room was'nt too bad ,but the bar was where the bums and stiffs drank. I took an Irish /American friend home with me for a flying visit in '63 and my dad suggested we go up and have a "quiet" drink before we returned to our ship. The three of us were standing at the bar in the backroom and we could see the front room through the arched opening that connected the serving areas. A stool came flying through the opening and crashed into the optics at the back of bar we were standing at.
    Two men appeared through the opening ,they were knocking lumps out of each and then someone smashed a stool over one of their heads .Bodies were flying everywhere whilst we in the back stood silently viewing the gory spectacle. We finished our drinks and bade our goodbyes and got a taxi back to the docks. Mick,the Yank, says to me "Brian,if thats your old mans idea of a quiet drink.. I'd take a rain check on going for a wild night out with him !"
    Happy days in Kirkby,where the kids played tag with axes,
    BrianD

    Glad you like it Dave though it's full credit to Ken (Springy) who snapped it.

    Maggie May. The old Fort is facing the front of the 'new' Royal ozzy but if you mean the one at the back (as you mention the old Royal infirmary) then that was the Royal William.

    16th line down in the middle of this page:

    About time the muppet who owns The Vernon building did somethign with it. Same person who owns The Belevedere i think, and was hoping to sell both for redevlopment if memory serves me right.

    Vernon was a decent pub as well.

    This in the courtyard of Rigbys pub on Dale St. Nice to see wooden tables and chairs instead of plastic.

    Default The Prince of Wales, Pembroke Place

    Does anyone remember this pub or have any images?

    The Prince of Wales Pub.

    Was been variously listed as 126 Pembroke Place or it's junction with Crown Street East, 17a West Derby Street or 1 Dalton Street. The 1908 Edwardian Directory which is available shows 2 pubs on the SE and SW corner of this junction but the actual listing finishes at the end of Pembroke Place. Suspect it was on the north side of the junction and was cleared when the hospital was built but cannot be sure of this.

    PS have posted same request on another part of the forum.

    The Great Eastern, Mill Street. The tiles on the roof were removed yesterday. Workmen are today removing the rest of the roof. I think this is the last of the local pubs named after the famous Brunel ship. LFC fans will know the link with Flagpole Corner. A model of this ship (which was also on the pub-sign) is in the Maritime Museum. I think 12 flats are to be built on the site.

    Another one bites the dust. There was also a Great Eastern on the corner of Langsdale st L3 until demolished in the 1980s.

    The Canon on Townsend lane has closed a few weeks ago, the Newsham has been borded up for a long time and still is .. (why was it known as the Birkenhead house ?? we never called it by it's proper name)

    I've seen countless pubs closed down everywhere.

    A day after Mill Streets' Great Eastern pub was demolished, this appeared in the Echo: "Brunel relic pub set for demolition"
    This time it's the New Ferry one. The article states the pub has panels from the famous ship.
