    Default A second unnamed pub

    Can anyone identify this pub please 253 Regent Street Kirkdale Liverpool in the 1860's. Publican was a Joseph Mulvey. This one is not mine but a memberof another forum is asking about it.

    According to Kelly's Directory of 1860 253 Regent Street didn't exist, the street numbers end at less than 80, although it might have expanded later on. I can't find any trace of Joseph Mulvey as a publican also.
    Best wishes,
    Chas

    the beer is all gratis
    you can smoke in the snug
    the barmaid is bra-less
    and you may spit on the rug

    the door's never locked
    and the fire's real coal
    the cellar's well stocked
    and there's steak in a roll

    the old guys are hopeless
    at any bar game
    the ladies are guileless
    in the pub with no name

    The one time I drank in
    this heaven on earth
    was a day I was gaspin'
    for all I was worth

    All there gave ovation
    and were glad that I came
    how'd you ask for direction
    to the pub with no name?

    And the motto of this paradise
    was simply, "when in Rome"
    I ask you to take my advice
    there's no mystery, this pub is called Home.
