Jim Scott from the North East of England has dedicated quite some time in capturing images of notable architecture from his area.
Jim feels that the sometimes pretentious architecture shouts 'look at me'. He has selected the pictures for online publication because of their place in the history and culture of this area. Jim quite rightly says, "Like many of the pictures on my site, if someone like me doesn't record them now it might be too late".
Below are a few common-sense comments and observations made by Jim which we would like to share with Club Historian visitors
“The 'clerb' was, and is, a source of cheaper drinks and of activities which the normal pub never catered for. In this area they are probably the only place left to play snooker for instance. Bingo was once the sole preserve of the WMC and men could join in without losing face. The big jackpot Fruit Machine also pulled people in. The new era of big money private bingo clubs is attracting younger women and must be damaging the traditional club.
