THESE young lads look a little young to be drinking in the Blue Horse but our source assures us they were all 18 or 19-years-old!

The photograph was sent in by Brian Birch who is pictured second from the left and shows him drinking with his pals (from left) Sammy Wells, John Youles, Ted Hewerdine, Dave Watson and Dave Wells.

Brian said: “I think we were all about 18 or 19. We would usually go to the Beehive first, then after we were slung out of there we would head to the Blue Horse in London Road.

“Those were the good old days.”

Brian suspects the photograph was taken around 1956 or 1957.
