Starkle starkle little twink
who the heck you are I think
I'm not under what you call
the alcofluence of incohol
I'm just a little slort of sheep
I'm not drunk like tinkle peep
I don't know who is me yet
but the drunker I stand here the longer I get
Just give me one more drink to fill me cup
'cuz I got all day sober to Sunday up.

Yes a sad sight but very common.

People are now sitting at home and not going to the pubs. I wonder why ?

It's not just cheap alcohol. I think a lot of the "older" generation feel intimidated by the rough atmosphere that can be encountered in city and town centres especially at night.

They prefer to keep safe at home.

Hi Petrus..
Right across from this pub is another thats got the shutters up... Both pubs used to do so well... both could pull in good crowds, and both pubs had their share of good friendly hosts. The smoking ban was for some the final straw... I was going to say 'nail in the coffin'... but it went a bit to well with the smokung ban... ;o)
Cheap beer is another reason, you are right... and I can see where you are coming from with wanting to feel safe. These two pubs were just that kind of pub... two far for the town centre pub crawling noisey... Anyhow whatever the reason once these are bought up for development they are gone for good and will be but a memory to some and a name mentioned in the future that throws up the question of ' Where was that one then?'

The pic of a deserted Globe makes me feel a pang of sadness! It was that very pub where I took my first sip of the amber fluid which has had such an impact on my life! Actually, around 1975 or so, this pub used to look like a lads club rather than a pub. Several of my Greeny contemparies used to congregate there to play pool and meet up somewhere warm. I can still picture the landlady but alas, her name escapes me. Also in that locality, opposite in fact, used to be Harolds corner shop in Ridling Lane / Lumn Road. Harold used to have about seven cans of home brand peas on a shelf, mouldy bread and not much else! He used to split a pack of Embassy No 6 - we would buy two or three and he would throw in matches and put them in a paper bag for us. How times change!

Harold Taylors shop was a little gold mine at one stage. He used old paste jars to make lollypops for the kids coming out of Leigh Street School. Also any muffins that weren't sold during the day were frozen and then thawed next day. His wife's name was Jessie.

When he was running short of cigarettes he used to send me to a tobacconist on Market street with a scruffy old bag and some cash to get his Woodbines, Players and Senior Service. How times have changed!
