This picture of a crowd outside the Granada Club bingo hall in St Peter’s Hill in the 1970s has been sent in by regular contributor Michael Matsell.

The picture shows the bingo hall, formerly a cinema, in between the In Touch card shop and the Guildhall Tavern. Further along to the left is Mackay’s, a photography shop which was formerly owned by well-known local photographer Walter Lee.
