Ladies

"This picture is of a happy crowd of ladies at the 'Navy Club'.  It was given to me by my mother in law, Jean Kernan, who is middle-left in the photo.  My wife tells me that the ladies had been on a bus tour then returned to the club.

The photo was taken some time in the 1970s.  The club was opposite The Ritz cinema in Broughton Street.  We used to go there on a Saturday night.  We had some great singsongs there. It was altogether a great crowd.   |I think there were a lot of Leithers there.  I wonder if anybody can name any  of them.  The club had a full-size billiard table upstairs.

I wonder if the club is still going." *

The Club

The club is still going.  Its address is at Heriot Hill House, 1 Broughton Road, Edinburgh.   I've just checked the Internet and found that:

-  SE Scotland Wargames Club meets there on Thursday evenings.

-  There is jazz on Sundays  ('Big Band Sundays').

-  There was a 'Valentine Funky Dress' evening in February 2010.
