    I don't know, Gerard.
    I worked on the Ribble buses when I first came to Liverpool, so never went into the bar (not while working).
    Wasn't I a good boy?

    I forgot to add this pic to the others.

    I did go into it sometimes.

    Besides, Ged, it closed in 1989, and you reckon you weren't old enough to drink then!

    The bus has just crossed Prescot Street from Moss St in the background. It has now entered Daulby Street in this Sept 70 shot. On the right is the Majestic Cinema who stood on the corner of Daulby st and Boundary Place. This block was demolished as part of the Royal Liverpool Hospital site. The pic is by A.F. Gahan.
