Does anyone have any memories or photos of the Filibuster pub Snow Hill? I know of one but won't be getting that.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Thank you Phil, my hero, it was the Town Crier. As soon as I saw the name I knew, Thank you.
Hi Carol, I've just discovered my Great Granddad lived opposite the Town Arms (Town Crier) in MacDonald Street. He was a hairdresser at 64 and 65 MacDonald Street

I had a couple of drinks in there , got to know the barman . I used to work around the corner in Charles Henry St , the firm I worked for moved  they were originally sited on Holloway Head. So the barman and I decided to go to The Locarno one Friday night, when we came out we went next door to the curry house bad move for me . My very first and last curry , o'h I got through the meal ok but for the next three weeks all I could taste was curry all I could smell was curry so after that experience I said to myself about curries count me out thank you very much . So I definitely remember The Town Crier Teloma

This might be a little early but these were the shops and houses across the road from the Town Arms.

I was talking to my neighbour yesterday and she told me that she was born in The Minerva Vaults, 17 Great Hampton Row. 1932. I have looked everywhere for a photo but unfortunately cant find one anywhere so I am appealing to the forum. This is not for me its for a neighbour, she lived there for 7 years before the bombs moved the pub a couple of inches she said.


Thank You.

Sorry but this is the first time I have sen this post, hope you are still watching. Yes it was Rea Street that the tram was pulling out of, this map is from the 1950's but it still shows the location of the earlier photo.

Amazing that I put a post up and a reply comes 3 months later from an earlier post.
