By, how habits have changed,had the photo been taken in the 50s no way would you see a female in a pub .sitting with a pint glass in there hands,it was nearley always a Pony or a short,which by the way was much dearer than a pint of bitter in those days, nowadays with equality,equal pay etc the ladies are big spenders. for the ladies did you go Dutch paying for a night out,? Not many did us lads were to proud.am l wrong.?l think we were gentleman in those days I would,nt dream of taking my girlfriend in the PIT end at the old theatre in Lyon st might get a bit of flack here?a pint in the late 50s one and tuppence, a short one and sixpence a great night out on ten bob?|
