Not a pub I ever used, but the pub had three previous names before it's present one, or so I read. The Hole in the Wall, The Confession Box, The Sara Moon, and now The Peaky Blinder. As far as I know Sara Moon was at first a French model who has now turned to fashion photography and films. As the name is not a common one I assume the pub was called after her.


Phil I remember going in there in the late 60's with a mate , got to chat to a couple of gals. Worst days work ever . Could'nt get rid, came up to where I lived two weeks on the trot . Luckily they never gained entry the second time , so end of relationship

Back into the town centre for this image of a very busy Bull Street at Christmas in 1961. There is A big difference between Bull Street then and Bull Street now.

Honestly DJ you could write a book or a TV series about the goings on from right at the top to the bottom at Alum Rock Road.
What's stopping you Spud, go on, earn yourself a fortune and it would probably make a lot better than some of the things on offer today O0
P.S. a 1% commission for suggesting it would see me alright if it ever came to fruition ;D ;D ;D [size=78%] [/size]
