Someone commented this somewhere in the replies. Not at home, not in responsible company but fine in pubs apparently.

Back in 1954 you only took your hat off if there was a lady in the vicinity and of course he could be enjoying a beer in a men only pub, as there were quite a few of them back then.

1954 not 1854...all women had been voting for nearly 30 years by the time that old boy was having a sup.

Was staying in Ortigia yesterday and could see this funky pyramid in the distance. So been to check it out today and it is something to behold!

Right by Oakwood clock. Can't remember it being a decent chip shop though. One of my first girlfriends lived a few streets behind.

Yeah that's just down the road from me in Oakwood. Nice to look at, wouldn't rave about the fish&chips though.
