I'll start with an easy one.

Winner gets to set their own question.

To win, just say what it refers to or where it is.. You can use phrase old and new, known and little-known (Two examples would be "The Big House" and "The Bullring" - something that most people would know from just those words)




FIRST QUESTION. Where is or what is

"Willy Wiper"

Sorry everyone. Likely to be off on a rant at the drop of an annoyed otter.

Another easy one to get us started.

Where or what was "The Honkytonk"?

There was indeed, it was by the Noahs Ark boozer, we used to go there for an afternoon bender when we didn't want finding, be around 1979/80, as pubs closed at 3 in them days. Was drinking a lot in Netherley then and we would all bail down to Speke and carry on drinking, it had a pool table and we would play for pretty hefty sums, doubles at £20 a man, £50 singles, happy days and still good mates with many of the lads.

All day drinking ruined the afternoon benders and the mobile made it worse for doing a disappearing act and face the music as and when you eventually got home.

I thought so. You describe it perfectly. Real name, The Ponderosa, or Pondy. Fulfilled the same role as, the Gladray, The Yankee Clipper and the Curzon in town (and the Newington on Bold Street) and the Red Pepper in Norris Green, as supplier of drinkies during those dry hours - not that I ever participated myself you understand. Remember playing footy in Speke once and at halftime we all piled down to the Pondy for a couple, all kitted up, like.

There was a 'Ponderosa' on Park Road - officially The Farmer's Arms. It was a Country & Western haunt, hence the nickname......think Ricky Tomlinson played there !?

Was a club On Walton lane at the traffic lights what is now the Everton one shop , on the other corner was the blue house pub . Ricky Tomlinson as hobo rick done shows there as well as plenty of other country acts etc always one you’d get a drink in my dad was a regular there . The nurses club was a mythical oasis of naughtiness on rice lane I think 😀

Went to the Farmer's one Sunday lunch time in 1969 with a mate who lived in Pecksniff St off Park Road. His dad and his mates bought our ale and then back to his for Sunday roast.

Haven't thought about that for nearly 50 years. That's what great about some of these threads, allows me to relive the golden days - before kids, mortgage and aching knees.
