For those of you who were familiar with the layout of the Lantern, you will notice that the door at the bottom of the stairs seems to be in the wrong place, well the restaurant used to be two rooms, with the centre door being the main entrance, does anyone have any pictures of what it looked like then, if so, email them to me, and I will put them on the site. If you only have photographs, then email me, and I can have them scanned in.


For those interested the camera was an old Russian Zenith B, long gone,
using 400asa film, that I used to develop and print myself, great fun.
