well fancy you working at the roebuck jo...i always have trouble remembering the name of that one..
oh no volty no walking along soho road now...i only go there if transport is available (car) and history dictates...my rellies used to have the barrel pub for about 11 years early 1900s and a couple of years back i gritted my teeth and got some inside shots and out back of it....just in time...6 months later it was once again closed by police for persistant drug use and is now a lloyds chemist..oh i passed the pally again the other day...getting worse..
