PharmaT - I agree. Christmas grottos not the same anymore. Did you see the film footage I posted the link to? Imagine a Santa arriving in Glasgow like that today  :o

Skoosh, obviously like St Enoch's station the Eagle will be long gone  :'(   I'm too young to remember the pub.....back then the only foaming drink I would be "swallying " would be Cremola Foam !

Looby  :)

The Old Eagle apparently went back to 1818 so a bit older than Lewis's ;D
