1967 to 1972, can remember any John living on Eagle St in those days except ME as for pigeon fancier, there were pens at the front owned by John Ormerod Sen and one outback owned by a father and son team, can't remember their name but all three were into pigeons

On Whalley Road on the second floor of that red brick building where Catlows was. Started in summer, 1967 and I was one of the first members. You went through a little doorway and up a flight of stairs. They had that strange luminous lighting that made the pass out stamp on your hand glow - cracking music though!

Probably wouldn't have appealed to you - no alcohol served. I was only about 16-17 when I went there...moved on to licensed venues a couple of years later!

Now you've got me thinking Dave and trying to picture you, which I'm normally very good at, but I'm struggling this time Obviously you must have gone in the Bull, everybody did.
