Forgot about the juke box!

Goin to The Conti was a great night. No pretentiousness here.

Ah the Conti! Great nights dancing to the jukebox in front of a tropical "muriel" as Hilda Ogden would have called it. Nurses got in free on Tuesday nights - always a good night. Made a change from the Cyprus. Makes you realise how few clubs there were in town back then.

Tuesday night - nurses night, best night of the week, the story goes that nurses once got paid on a Wednesday, so they spent what they had left the night before, or so the nurses said, quite a skill getting sneeked into the nurse's accomodations past the security so it was, then creeping out in the morning only to find half the conti was in there LOL.
