Rev the two plant pot outside of the Prince of Wales have gone missing
The one in the middle the Belle Vue is closed
When I was working as a apprentice painter for Aspinwalls in Mesnes St.We were decorating the Prince of Wales and uncovered painting s on the wall of regulars who when to the First World War it was around 1965.The local press came to photograph them.
In Atherton,Wheatsheaf,Mountain Dew and Jolly Nailor all within less than 40 yards and all still open.
On the left just past the Douglas Bank pub, where that car is in the photo, I remember a line of terraced houses with Mrs Hill’s off licence on the corner.
