OUR picture of an old- fashioned bar brought back memories for one particular reader – because she used to work behind it.
Margaret Walmsley from Whitby correctly identified the location of the photo- graph as Ellesmere Port Civic Hall.
She believes the picture of the bar was taken in about 1973, when she started work at the Civic Way premises.
Mrs Walmsley said: “I worked behind the bar for nearly 10 years so it brought back a lot of good memories.
“I remember all the staff who used to work there and some I’m still friends with now. We all worked when there was a function on.
“My husband said his sister was the first to have a wedding reception at the Civic Hall, which I think was 1967.”
Mr Walmsley said an extension was built in the late 1960s prior to her working there and included a bar in the kitchen area which was based at the rear of the photograph and used by staff.
