Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 27th June, 2021)
These pizza vans are a good idea, Ive seen a few of them in different locations.
It's a change from buying ice cream I suppose on a hot day. But with freezers nearly reaching the ceiling we don't need to do that nowadays.
You can hire these pizza vans for an event, like birthdays and weddings, much better than getting a ice cream men or a bouncy castle.
A mobile Chinese Meals van could do New Springs Rolls??
Wood fired pizza from a van - I wonder what kind of wood he's using?
Which is worse the freestanding advert boards or the fixed advert stand for cluttering the footpaths up?
Baffled MCC, anyone know anything about this club ?
Drizzles of olive oil . Pulled pork . Hand stretched pizza .
I like Bob Mortimer's crack at chef speak with his description of tinned spuds as trapped potatoes .
Hand stretched pizza? Everything will either be tinned, chilled or frozen in that van Poet, or something maybe fresh, as...
I remember in a shop on Wigan Lane which I haven't been in since, this being 20 odd years ago, the customer in front had picked the toppings he wanted and was then asked if he wanted extra cheese, the assistant then used his hand to wipe the snot candles from his nose then his hand on his apron, he then proceeded to dig into the cheese with the same hand! At this point I being gobsmacked exited the shop, whether the pizza was cooked and the customer took it away I don't know?
I once knew a bloke who kept this pub. His name was Ray, could've been Williams? Painter and decorator by trade, I think he was from Downall Green area of St Helens?
Handy for the fishermen on the canal.
Didn't the Crown at one time hold a Tug of War over the canal, along with children's fun rides, BBQs etc. in the car park on weekends during summer? Or am I getting my pubs on the canal mixed up.
Also, even though I'd been past here many a time by bus to Rivington, I never knew that there was another pub, The Bridgewater, further up than the Crown. Another photo by Dennis.
Another event held there was piano smashing contests, at the time no one wanted the old style pianos, now those old style pianos command high prices.
Cyril, the Kirkless Inn at Top Lock used to have a Gala Day in the summer to raise money for charity. One of the events was a tug of war across the Lock outside the pub with the losing side ending up in the lock.
It was a great day, well attended and enjoyed by all but, sadly lost to the needs of the all encompassing “Health and Safety”.
