I used to use a great hardware shop in Summer Lane Called Whites, it was down opposite the ambulance station I think, it was a real good old Ironmongers. I am still using some of my old work knives I bought there over twenty years ago.

in that case he can haw haw off this thread hes nowt to do with summer lane [Frowning]

jo the pub you could be on about is likely to the the salutation very well known for it live jazz nights...im pretty sure ive a thread on the pubs section where i posted photos of all the pubs that were on summer lane in the 60s (15 in total) and only one had the address of summer lane which was the vine.. the only one i dont have is the red lion corner of summer lane and bridge st west..demolished sometime in the 1920s and bridge st police station was built on its ground..still looking for a photo of that one...

SB..whites ironmongers is still very much up and running...
