I'm sure "Mr Digby's" and "Ma Bakers" were around at the same time and so couldn't be at the same place, or this was an upstairs and downstairs jobber?

I thought Ma Bakers turned straight into Pink Flamingo.

Can't find any pictures of Mr Digby's anywhere - they used to get quite a few of the big bands on there, certainly more than Hamiltons.

I used to go to it when it was New Orleans/Basin street but it was still quite often known as Ma Bakers.

If the pic is correct why is the Post Office letters further along over the Cool room and beach


I think the Cool Room used to be cubik and mainly for beatnicks
then it may have been the California before any of the other names
