It was much nicer then, don't you think, skida?
I used to love the Farmers Rest (RIP)! I agree with you.
This area has undergone much development, blai, and I am pleased that I recorded it before the changes. Thank you.
This was when Anglias were large cars and folks could cross the roads! Brilliant, well done mate.
Farmers, great place for refreshments when out shopping with the Missus, Keith, did you ever go down there at the evening sessions!, by gum the music an that were right grand, pardon?
The Wooden Dolly too, ever remembered, often missed
They call it progress you know!
Farmers, Percy, Haymarket and City Tavern: The Heavy Metal Triangle. I loved it. Sometimes the triangle extended to The Man on the Moon/Jubilee/Trillians. It seems that no-one remembers The Gay Trooper (back in the days when gay meant light-hearted)
Hey Jethro: This was rush hour in Newcastle! Must have been taken about 5.30pm as I was on my way home from work. Thanks for your comments.
I remember the Gay Trooper, Skida. I remember being chased around the bar by a Hell's Angel seeking to kill someone, anyone really. A regular occurrence, I was led to believe. I still drive up Percy Street regularly, and wish the traffic was the same as in 1973. Good photo, nice to reminisce.
The biker would probably have been a member of the Blackburns Gang, who "ran" the Trooper, if I remember correctly.
Thanks for visiting Eddie.
