I think the Empress Billiard Hall became The Beachcomer. the Empress Ball Room became the Casino.

That Mac, off Wigan Rejects, has just sent me a picture of someone wearing an old pair of jeans and playing 'pocket billiards'!

He' goes worse. I showed my disapproval but he just laughed!!

I think the County Billiard Hall became Chaplin's Club.

I dared Mac to put it on here, but he said he couldn’t because he can’t get on here anymore. He reckons Brian has put some ‘anti-Mac data’ on the site which blocks him when he tries to re-join.

tonker, not heard that phrase for years, remember an instructor at Old Boston who used to accuse trainees of playing pocket billiards when they were day dreaming.
