For those who remember me and for those who don't, I decided to create this website to help keep the memory of "THE PLACE" alive.

During my 11 years working at The Place, including a wonderful 2 years (1973 to 1975) at the Cheshire Cat and Korkey's), I met a vast amount of wonderful, non-drug-taking, non-binge-drinking, do-no-harm-to anyone people. I started in 1968 as a part-time barman, finishing in 1979 as General Manager. Kevin Donovan and Bill Morris, the other managers and staff, and the fabulous music of the 60' and 70's, made it a wonderful 'Place' to work. When I am asked (and I often am), what it was that made The Place so great, my answer is simple - you did,.. you the customers, turning up 2, 3 and even 4 nights a week.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the website; sending their photographs, car stickers, pass books and even a T-shirt!. I hope that The Place website jogs a happy memory or two, if it does, ..please put one in The Guestbook.

Wishing you all well,
Tony Salt

PS. My sincere thanks go to Nigel Shaw, the webmaster (he's from Solihull and never went to The Place…..strange!!!)……
