Great renovation but I must admit I preferred it when it was red!

used to be on our Sunday night route around town after the Ball & Boot - onto Crofters, Bees Knees (for loop juice) Vic and always finish off in the Clarence (and if we had any energy, or money, left it was up to Sloopies!!) Happy days!!

Red? I remember when it was black, like everything else near a railway station. It looks great.
