That is of course only the merest hint of a suggestion of a possibility that I might be right! Spot on Leo. The steps up for many a sailor to The Old Parrot Hotel.

This is the same book BillyBritvic mentions, with the map in it. There is a list in the back. It's a fair few years old now, but should be a good source to work from.

Well I've gone through all 23 pages and haven't seen this mentioned so hopefully I can tick this off my list as I want to get one of these so bad. Right Alexander street behind the library theres quite a few and the age if the street fits too. Can anyone confirm if these are legit?

Sorry I forgot how to do small links. I know these maybe electric now but wondering if they have been refurbished they're not all identical either.
