    Great find, George,
    I think that some of the 1963 dated pics are incorrect. Mersey Beat pub, Flower Power?
    Regards,

    I think the "Flower Power" was just a later label, not a representation of the actual picture, due to the background. The kid doesn't look very hippy...

    Maybe Az-gila,
    but the "Mersey Beat pub" didn't exist (in name only) in 1963. This is definitely a cock up.
    Just offering a little clarity. You can't believe everything you see and hear on the infra-nest.
    Good post, though,
    Chas

    I'm with you on this one Chas, there's a few that don't look right.

    This one for instance....http://www.flickr.com/photos/carrie1...n/photostream/

    I know the Mersey Beat pub existed, George, having lived up the road from it at one time. The question I raised was about the date (1963).
    It didn't exist then, maybe you can supply an authentic date?
    Chas

    Just looked at Kellys 1964.
    Listed at junction of Park st and Mill st is the Albion hotel.
