Nice one Bandycoot, yes as you got older they called a brown over a boys drink, used to get a good black and tan in Brasseys three quarters of a pint of lovely mild and a bottle of Guinness, wish I could get one like that now, even at todays prices, but better at the old price. smile

That's right, we moved to the George & Dragon in Chester when I was 10, but we only stayed there for about 18 months and then moved back to the Nelson in Grove Road. We stayed at the Nelson for about 5 years when my father left the licensed trade.

Unfortunately Norman died young (59) in 1982 but you may also remember my mother Josie as well, she died in 2007 (84)

Yes I have a recollection of your mum, its a small world as they say, Brasseys became my local, the Pub was taken over by Clarie Hasey I think that's how it was spelt, a good local community Pub with many characters and an excellent pint of beer.

The following painting shows the Marine Hotel along with the Ship Inn and Stokes Seacombe Hotel. There is also the American Bowling Alley, Seacombe Tea Gardens and the Waterlilly Ferry.

It is not accurate as was drawn in 1928 with a view to representing how it would have looked before 1875.
