    This is what we are hoping - that it may be taken over and refurbished again.

    I think it looks awful. The square just does not suit having a betting shop. It's ridiculous that the pub was taken away. The pub gave character to the place. Williamson sq just looks bland and needs all the help it can get. A betting shop is the last thing it needs.

    Goose at the Queens, Derby Square, has scaffolding around it. A sign states 'All-bar-one, opening soon'

    I'm not sure what happened as I was away on holiday, but was told it was 'firebombed' in a targetted attack.

    That's really sad. I used to serve in the cocktail lounge upstairs to earn money for when I started college. Used to serve in The Royal Hotel (The Arkles) too.

    There's no sign of the Cabbage being rescued. It is still tinned up.

    Default Pubs in the early 1900s

    Great picture of the Hawthorne Greg's Dad!! Thanks!!

    We have a family link to the Hawthorne, as we think that our Granddad came over from Ireland in the early 1900s, and worked as a barman there.

    There are four other pubs mentioned in family legends, and I wondered if anyone has got any information and or photos of these pubs please:

    The ‘Albion’ at 340 Great Howard Street

    The ‘Baltic Fleet’ in Wapping

    The Brittania - 13 Scotland Road

    2 Kirkdale Road - which I think was the ‘Lambert’. Google Street view seems to suggest that it was opposite the old Hamlet at 1 Kirkdale Road and on the other corner of Boundary Street East from the - still standing - Hamlet on Scotland Road

    The 'Boundary Vaults' in Boundary Road. I know that there are a few 'Boundary Vaults' but not in Boundary Road

    The ‘Brass Bars’ - we have a photo (I have no idea of how to insert it here!) of a Pub around 1928 that has part of the name high up on the wall. It was the “??????? Towers'. It has a lot of brass bars at the front and we know it as it the ‘Brass Bars’. I've found a Pub called the Brass Bars on Copperas Hill, but I'm not sure if this is the same place, as I never heard talk of Copperas Hill.

    39 Mill Street

    68 Pitt Street

    The ‘Trojan Vaults’

    I know that I really do need to get down to the Records Office but, meanwhile, has anyone got any information and or photos of these pubs please

    I meant NINE pubs, not four. Sorreeee!

    Since the Peacock actually has a Liver Bird over it's painted sign - did it have an earlier name with Liverpool in it?

    The way things are going there will be no pubs left apart from the city centre bars.
    Who would have thought it !
    Not too long ago we would never have envisaged countless local bars disappearing.

    Thanks again for the great websites Oudeis, Ged and Gregs Dad. I have found photos of the Baltic Fleet and the Hawthorne, but nothing else.

    So, if thee are no photos, can anyone help with any memories of the Britannia at 13 Scotland Road/corner of Alexander Pope Street; or the Lambert at 2 Kirkdale Road/corner of Boundary Street East, or the Albion at 240 Great Howard Street/corner of Blackstone Street?

    Has anyone ever heard of the Trojan Vaults or the Worlds End?

    Or of a Boundary Vaults in Boundary Road??

    Can anyone identify 39 Mill Street or 68 Pitt Street as Public Houses. I don't have any directories.

    Would be grateful of any information

    Thanks

    ---------- Post added at 12:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:36 AM ----------

    PS. I have seen a poem about Mill Street, and it mentions a Pub called the 'Brass Bar'. Ring any bells??

    The former Whitehouse pub which features Banksy's Rat/Cat has been withdrawn from auction today as LCC have put a safety order on it.
