a little bit of useless trivia related to working on this job,
The Stone mason not bricklayer on this job, had a few of us help him on place he was fixing up as a jazz club in Liverpool, turned out to become a place well known, that old banana warehouse cellar became The Cavern

You're absolutely right. I worked there as a barman in 1971. Bitter and mild handpumps always had the date stamped on them and I always looked for this as some could be quite old. The Railway ones were stamped 1956 and were the same diameter from top to bottom a bit boring. The cellar walls ware the original ones and there was a little room about the size of an outside toilet. This had a door on it and had two old tea chests in it. Tom McCabe the licensee asked me to clean it out. One of the tea chests was packed with compacted straw and the other was half full. When I dug down I found a large quantity of handle glasses mostly pints but some half pints. They were like the 'dimple' shape but had a hexagon design. they were stamped GR V. The straw was stuck like concrete and we had to soak them to remove it before washing them and putting them into use. Needless to say they vanished very quickly. There was quite a few and I imagine some survive in local homes. They had obviously been overlooked stock from the old pub. I remember the cocktail bar upstairs and the two electric pumps in the cellar which pumped bitter and mild up to it. They were often breaking down.

You're so right, my mistake, somewhere on the internet had it at 119 the same as the railway but it is at 93.

I've asked for my inaccurate post to be deleted.

Thank you
