Many thanks

No but I remember it well. The sign 'Late Extra' was in blue on a white background illuminated above the door. Some of the building was used by nuns from Maris Stella convent (who would have Stella in a convent school name now?) and it was a bit of a joke that there was a bridge goin from Maris Stella to a niteclub.

Remember walking past there aged 15 (1968) or so and a man had been thrown down the steps by bouncers and was lying in a pool of blood. His (wife?) was shouting 'You didn't have to do that to him!' First aid was not being considered by her or the bouncers. Good Old New Brighton in the rare ould days.

My dad used to work there in the 70's (not as a bouncer!) hence the interest

Thanks for that, different doorman. I used to have the odd drink in there when John Brindle owned the place.

Yes it was on the junction of Rowson Street but not Virginia road. It was the bit of Wellington Road that everyone thinks is Virginia Road. Actually Wellington Road once went as far as Balmoral Road before they named that bit Virginia Road. Perhaps they found a virgin living there....if they did she's gone now.

I lived opposite the entry that led down to the Creep Inn. Many virgins may have gone down there but few if any came out.
