Well that's predictable, they all used to congregate on Molendinar St on the grassy bit in front of Capones (or whatever its called now)...with a trail of empty Tennents Super cans behind them....

What a brilliant thread! Pure nostalgia. In the early 80s I used to work in the area and walked past Schipka Pass every day.

Hi - does anyone know why the bridge/tunnel below was created? I assume St Andrew's Lane existed before London Street/Road, so when the latter was built the bridge and tunnel below allowed pedestrians to keep walking south along the existing St Andrew's Lane towards St Andrew's church. I understand from the forum the area underneath the cast iron bridge is now a ventilation tunnel for the railway underneath but who could confirm that 100% and does anyone know if my theory on the original purpose (pedestrian access along Lane) is correct or it had some other purpose?
