TIROLER BAR - GUILDBOURNE CENTRE

Getting pictures of the Tiroler bar seemed to be impossible until I stumbled across a web site tribute to Andy Franks - a guitarist with Uncles John's Band. The picture on the right shows the band performing in the bar in 1974.

In the picture, left to right: Andy Franks, Barry Ruffell and Roger Cloake. Andy sadly died last year (2010)

This was a time when stone cladding was all the rage, it helped to give an Austrian feel to the place.
   
View from the far end of the bar to the entrance A view rarely seen now
   

Emma Langley & Doreen Lindsey working behind the bar

Dave Hunt or Alan Jackson? (conflicting results)

   
Happier times being enjoyed by these two young ladies behind the bar. Are you one of them? Note: The table, chairs and bar top ended up in Macmillan's Bar
