Hi Roger

I agree and if you had a few pints in the town you could recline here without really being noticed. Would not get away with it on today's concrete!

All the Best Peter

I spent the summer of 73 working at Birmingham Airport (by coincidence) Peter but I am struggling to remember where I stayed. Sheldon rings a bell and a pub with the longest bar in England. Strange memories from a distant youth. Thanks for evoking them with this picture.

Hi Jethro

If you click here you can see a picture by roger a as it is today. You will see The Floozie in the Jacuzzi!

He lives over Sheldon way (the Bluenose quarter of Birmingham) and I will ask him if it was The Swan as I seem to remember it boasted the longest bar in Europe. I think The Swan has also now disappeared.

All the Best Peter

The SWAN it is Peter - what an excellent memory you have. Mine needs reformatting!

All the best.
