This used to be my local, and the publican and his wife (Tom and Breda Cassidy) were very good friends. What happened to them and the many other regulars, eg, Paul from the printers, Simon (started a car and driver service in Tooley Street
), Les from Fisher Downside, the guy that lived in Riley Road
(forgotten his name), he worked as a scene shifter and was also a massive Arsenal supporter and Dave from the Purbrook (sp?) Estate, worked as a civil servant, MoD I think but could have been the Home Office; more whose names I have forgotten? Their son worked for The Times. Such very nice people. Does anyone reading this know where they are now? They had relatives in London, around Queens Park area, I believe.
Would absolutely love to hear news of any of these people. Someone bought and built on the site, that's all I know. I wonder if the print works went as well.
A huge thank you to any contributor.
