    Used to go there in the late 70s when it was the Masonic to see groups.

    Now 'Yesterdays' bar and cafe, Victoria St, but this space was our would be copping off area when we frequented it when it was Gatsby's in the late 70s. In the early 80s we then actually played there a few times.

    Just missed you, Ged. A mate of mine had the Masonic for a while in the mid 70s. I used to stand in for him when he wanted a night off. It could be a bit dodgy but for some reason the ruffians thought I was a copper and would behave. Don't suppose it would make a difference these days.

    Thanks for the website mention Steve. Try this cazzi www.inacityliving.piczo.com but I can tell you now that the Spiral Staircase is not on it. I used to drink in the one in Old Hall Street which may be a modern one on the site of an older one as it was in a 1960s block of shops by the post office I used to go to with the works mail.

    Cheers Kevin. Yes you do look a bit like a copper but I don't suppose they tell such crude jokes. Poultry shed indeed.

    Afraid not Cazzi as I was going there quite some time after your Great Aunt and Uncle had it I think. I assume by 'after the war' you mean they had it in the late 40s or 50s?

    They're not pulling it down Roni, by biting the dust, gd means closing as a pub. There is an everyman bar and bistro.

    Trader Jacks. We used it as a meeting place for lads nights out in town. Wonder where it got that name from?

    Oh good. Some enterprising person should snap this up and make it work.

    I went to the Everyman Bistro several times last time I was home, loved the veggie food. I remember going to the bar with some people I met but a Liverpool friend is telling me there is no bar so I was checking.

    I came to Liverpool at least once a year when my father and Aunt Alice were around.

    Teddy, I assumed you've tried www.scottiepress.org

    If you use the search facility on here, top right of the home page, there are lots of Scottie Road threads.

    I know from another member here who has links with Kew Street that old pics are hard to find.

    For Teddy, not sure how this is on the pubs thread though but plenty of pubs one time on Scottie.

    A quick google of Thomson Street, Liverpool 6 should provide you with a clue as to why this is called the Pipeline club and whose Social Club it once was.

    I should guess from the old New Brighton Tower, yes? Isn't it Liscard not Liskard?
