Hey bridge ender, talking about bars in that area can you or someone else comfirm for me that the bar right at the end of the Queens Bridge was called the 'Aeroarms Bar'. You had the bridge, then a gateway, then the bar.

Hi All
Shamrock249  you are correct  it used to have a neon sign of an areoplane with a  vapour trail.Above this bar used to be the Bakers Club a place where out of work bakers went  to wait for casual work in the bakeries that  had vacancies for that day
