hey Sue...........see attached. I used to go there a lot a good few moons ago. And also the Queens next door.

How many of you remember the clubs in New Brighton during the early 60's. Here is a picture of the Kraal Club sent in by Lesley Swift.

The Kraal competed with many other clubs such as The Toledo. The Defiants played there along with other famous merseyside bands at the time.

The Kraal - ha, happy memories of a couple of (45 I guess) years ago. May have been even earlier.

Can't remember a club called Toledo (that competed with the Kraal), apart from a small none drinking one in Egerton/Mason street which was under the Crackers club. Lots of us kids used to go there in the early sixties.
