what an interesting pic and fabulous notes.
i agree with you on the works of mr.reed and the type of person he was.
he truly was 'a personality'.
a very touching image.

I like this quaint pub! Looks like a great place to visit. I really like the brick facade of the Pub. Looks like an interesting street for photography. Great with the table outside too.

Good shot .. sad story !
Oliver Reed was a grand Actor who died in 2nd May 1999,
There is one film of him that blew me out of my shoes:
Jean la Bęte !!
The story is simple enough: Jean la Bęte (Oliver Reed),is atrapper living in the wilds of Canada in the 1850s, and has 'orderd' himself a wife ..'Ladies' who are in prison in the UK.. but due to a deal
could changed there punishment if willing to go to Canada and marry men, living in the wild in absolute solitude .. Places where one hardley can find a fair young maiden (*_*) Etc etc
I think is was (poor) Rita Tushingham to be the 'happy' bride
Memmories here Billy, due to your photo . A fine posting and adds something to my grey cells, I would have never know where the 'bloke' died!

Good one Bill, good note.
Maybe have seen a movie or two of him, cannot remember.
Will checkout John's advice and see the 'Jean la Bęte' one.
Good post Bill

Interesting background story!
The exterior is well captured, with great details in this fine entrance...
I notice the table and two chairs in front, maybe they don't expect a rush then!
Your suggested theme seems interesting so you should go ahead! Don't forget to advertise in Forums...
