    Familiar landmark for Geordies. Boozing days 40 years later (1970s) get off the bus at Warswick Street, meet your girlfriend outside the fire station, cross the road for a pint or two in The Adelphi pub (Shakespeare Street) have a wee in the underground toilet outside, down to the Market Lane pub then make our way along High Bridge, have a couple in Bacchus pub then The Duke of Wellington, up to the Bigg Market, another wee in the underground toilet, then into The Half Moon. Don't remember much after that. 😵 Thank for sharing a great photo.
