  1. My parents were licensees during the 1950's. They told us about the Mooney Gang connection
  2. In 1974 I was taken to my 1st indian restaurant (if it could be called that), it was the Islamabad on Attercliffe road, opposite the police station. The tables were covered with gingham cloth and the food served in white bowls, no cutlery just chapatis and your fingers. What a shock for a 16yr old. Absolutely loved it and had many meals there over the years before it closed.
  3. Does anyone remember Gangsters and the laser light show?
  4. Thanks Lyn 1 but these are of the present day Wordsworth. The old one I am looking for was demolished when this one was built in 1966. As a footnote my Mum Thelma Redfern who was the Landlady when it closed died on the 7th Jan 2016 aged 83.
  5. The first landlord at the old tavern I can remember was Bernard Waddams, the other one I can recall was Harold Robinson later to became steward at Colleyclub .M


  6. My parents Ray & Thelma Redfern were Landlord and Landlady from !963 to 1966 when the old single storey pub closed
  7. My Parents Ray and Thelma Redfern were Landlord and Landlady of the Kelvin for a couple of years. They left in about 1963.
  8. Has anyone a decent photo of the original single storey pub
  9. Has anyone a good picture of this pub
  10. The original single storey Wordsworth was demolished in 1966 to make way for the new Wordsworth in the photograph. My parents Raymond & Thelma Redfern were licensees from 1962 to 1966.
  11. The Kelvin didnt close until 1961/2. The reason I know this is that my parents Raymond & Thelma Redfern were the licensees until it was demolished.
