The Royal George


Midway bewteen the two previous days posts is the Royal George, once a thriving public houser, centre of the community, but now a rotting shell used as a flyposters billboard. There were once undreds of these street corner pubs but as the communities changed and left hey closed down and fell into disrepair.

Les Auld: Thanks Tim.
Very interesting processing Les of an old building that could tell many a story I am sure.
Les Auld: Probably many stories were told inside the building, thanks for the comment Brian.
It's sad when community venues like this go from thriving to abandoned.

Great pp on this one. I think the building would be far less compelling in stark , untouched daylight.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Karima, appreciate your stopping by.
Great bit of nostalgia Les. There is a cracking photo of the place in its former glory here - http://www.toxteth.net/places/liverpool/pubs/royal%20george%201992.htm
Les Auld: Thanks for the web site Alistair, most informative.
