Always remember me ma volunteering to wash the pub curtains at home, she put them in the sink and the water ended up like brown ink - that should have been enough to stop me ever smoking.
The West Derby is still nicknamed Barry's after a former manager.
The Old Stanley (closed) was know as Dixie's, again after a former manager.
Oh and a more pertinent to those who worked in United Biscuits when it had more p!ss-heads working there. The Railway on Binns Road was known as Meeting Room 'R' and even displayed an official meeting room sign above the bar in the lounge. Thinking about it, there were loads of meetings, appraisals and interims held in there.
There was a pub in Boundary st known as 'Smokey Joes' - does anyone remember the real name ?
There was a pub on the next corner too, but I've forgotten the name.
The Hare and Hounds in Prescot, was always known as Tommy Halls, so popular was the name, that they actually changed the name from The Hare and Hounds to Tommy Halls (Who was once the landlord)
