Love the old pics Ron, nice buildings well built, clean streets and not to much traffic, and you always had a bobby on beat.

What a great advertisement for the pub is the Bulls Head on the wall above the first floor bay window, wonder what ever happened to it. You're right about the nice buildings too Dave.

Well spotted Cyril I missed the head on wall, I was looking at the ladder and wondered had they used it for the bunting, that head would have been a good souvenir when pub closed, does anyone know when this would have been, I remember my mother taking me to a cafe close by think it was called the Ucp.
