Remember it being a quiet alternative to doing a mad one on Market Street !!!!!

Pictures with a young lady then off to to Letters - if she was posh and from Oxton ! (reader I married her!)

Talking about 1982-3 when all the Skid Row pubs were still open...

I used to frequent the Letters a fair bit in the early 80's, run by a baldy scouser called Phil, lovely bloke, had his family run it with him. A lot of punk rockers and indie kids in there but never any trouble. Dic Aberdaeron was one of the regulars i remember in there.
