Yates' Wine Lodge, Blackpool

Seems to have been there forever and used to have sawdust on the floor in the old days.

    Blackpool has got its tacky side ~ I doubt if anyone living in Blackpool would deny that, but it has an attractive side as well, and I hope to give a bit more attention to that when the weather gets better.

    I deal with the problem of the two Blackpools in my picture sets by having two sets for Blackpool ~ Blackpool jolly and Blackpool sad.

    Eee! 1980...Yates' Jelly-beans (Pernod, something else, and Blackcurrant) and a great kebab from just up the road. I only ever had a couple of nights out in Blackpool and I remember them both. The other one was during the seventies in the cabaret bar on Central Pier (Inde-Coope Best Mild and a long walk back to Preston)

    I never thought of that. Perhaps it's intentional.

    Such a shame what happened, I hope they manage to rebuild it back to its former glory! I hope the 21yr old who did this feels ashamed of himself for causing so much damage and heartache, I dont know what goes through the minds of some people!

    Call me a cynic if you wish, but I believe that I know the answer ~ ~ ~
