Haven't we been through all this before, i can't find it, thats the problem, the large building was above Timothy Whites i think, Burtons was across the gap that led down to the Masons lodge, left on the photo.

The door was only the size of an ordinary house door which should give it away. up the stairs bar on the far end.

memories yes it must have been 50 years ago. That sounds awful doesn't it. Yes and remember going to Empress New Brighton as well. I remember the groups and doing the latest dances. I think a few boxers used to go as well. I remember drinking a sparkling perry drink, similar to Babycham, but someone put something in it and I was out of the game for a few days. My mum went off her head.

I used to go to the Craftsmans club in the late 50s before i went to sea ,i used to go to the Empress as well They were run by two brothers Billy & Jack Magee i dont know about boxers but you had to be able to look after yourself in there, my mates used to come down from the north end (the garrys )to go there, we had quite a good little team we could hold our own against anybody
What good times they were not much money but we had a great time in those clubs. We used to go to the Park Ballroom as well ,anyone remember it
