There were lots. Golden Guinea(Krall), Penny Farthing, Tudor, Late Extra, Empress, Powerboat, Disc'o Dine, Crackers. There were others too. I never knew their names. All tucked down entries or above shops.

i went to the Empress every weekend when i was 16...had to be 18 to get in tho!!! but we got in...while we were queing we would work out what year we were born to make us 18!! it was great tho, and the lights in there...if you wore anything white it would show up brilliant white...you looked like an Omo advert!!! does anyone remember omo washing powder??
we would get the last bus home,and if we missed it we would walk! but you were safe then, i wouldn't do it now!!!!everyone went out for a good time then,not like now...always seems to end in someone getting stabbed or attacked, in all the time we went to the Empress i only ever saw one fight,and that was when the bus driver was attacked and robbed, it really frightened me, i went home white as a sheet.

Wasn't it the bikers from the Empress that effectively started the Easter Egg Run? I remember them doing charity runs of some sort.

Went to all of those during my misspent youth, but no photographs I am afraid.
