That's a coincidence,i found a website this morning about pubs that had shut down in North London,there was loads,some big ones and some that had been there for years...sad really,but just another sign of how the country has changed...

That website is called Derelict London,its not just North London pubs on there,its all of London split into areas,it gives a bit of history and a picture of the outside of each pub....if you want to depress yourselves have a look.

Ask him if Kenny Stack is still around? Ken is an old character from the area,and a life long Arsenal supporter, and always had a drink in the Wheatsheaf before heading up to the west End.Apart from being one of the sharpest dressers I ever saw he was funny as hell,full of stories.He knew everyone from North, East, South and West.Always in  imaculate suits and the best shoes money could buy.It's from him that I got the phrase "I've seen a better dressed wound !"

I got to know him in the 80's when I worked on the reception (with a Kilburn bloke coincidently! ) of Besties place on Dover St.He was a regular along with all the other well known 60's East End blokes and Islington men who would be in their 80's now I suspect.

When he was running it, It was no longer a working class pub, The only pub that one can still say for the locals[ thats the ones still living around here], Is the Golden Lion , Fulham Palace Road] and the British Legion on New Kings Road.

An Arsenal Supporter in Fulham...??,smile.gif

Golden Lion is a Fulham supporters pub. You have to be a season ticket holder to get in on a match day. Not many decent pubs around there - whatever the clientele. Wetherspoons at Putney Bridge is very good - for a Wetherspoons. Parsons Green has a good pub with mostly posh customers

Interesting piece on Modgeneration

Len Peters -

'......Didn't you have one in the sixties then Moose ? Most of us did, a tanker jacket was just a Summer parka, USAF blue,olive or sand,very very common amongst the proper scooter kids,but we shopped at the surplus not Carnaby Street , that was for the tourists and pretenders mate ;-) They were the mod jacket before the pretty coloured Harrington arrived :-)

We used to wear em in Summer before Harringtons came out,they were the same material as parkas and ex US military in 3 colours,cheaper than a windcheater and warmer than em too.They weren't like those bomber jackets tho,the nylon ones with the orange lining or daft monkey jackets ,they were heavier and not as padded and buttoned on the neck so they didn't blow up like footballs and you still see em in Yankie war films,tank and flight crews wore em.....'

Anyone?

I can see a few on images,but I cant see a button on the neck either,i have to say that a blue one sounds doubtful to me.
