Sorry Robbob!us so called Schooner glass is a large glass for sherry. Its called a Sheila Glass in OZ. Got this from Wiki.

Just didn't know if you poshies wives asked for this these days. Its more than likely to be one of those £5 buckets you get in many pubs/clubs.  

Then again we are moving back to Gin Palaces?

A Schooner is a measure of beer in Oz especially in NSW.  It's smaller than a pint, 450ml vs 570ml.

Murdered by a US serviceman on her way home.

Gladys lived in Bishop Road and had been visiting a friend in Boundary Road.

My mum also lived in Bishop Road and knew Gladys.

I will try and find a link to the story.

Nice one Hort.

 

Here below a picture that Ste the manager of Atlas Salvage on Jackson St had paid for by who ever did this.There is only him and myself who has this..well we did :)

He said it was taken in the late 90's.

 

You may be able to pinch in or zoom in and see a Citroen Dolly,a Capri and plenty more.
