Here's something for the great unwashed... Dirty Dicks outside Liverpool Street Station!
Although it seems I'm being giiven the evil eye by the bloke standing in the doorway, it's pretty much just a run of the mill, standard city boozer, not some dodgy gentleman's club or gay bar.. Talking of which... here's something fairly amusing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI
Here's the pub's website if you want to read a litlte about it http://www.dirtydicks.co.uk/
But if you haven't time, here's a bit about the pub from their website
The original Dirty Dick, was Richard, or some say Nathanial, Bentley, a prosperous city merchant living in the middle of the 18th century, who owned a hardware shop and warehouse, and it said to be the inspiration for Miss Havisham in Dickens' Great Expectations.
Bentley had been quite a dandy in his youth, but following the death of is fiancée, he refused to clear up or clean anything.
His house, shop and warehouse became so filthy that he became a celebrity of dirt. Any letter addressed to The Dirty Warehouse, London, would be delivered to Bentley. He stopped trading in 1804 and died in 1809.
Didn't plan on taking this shot, had actually visited Spitalfields Market after work for a photo, but decided on this as I walked to catch the tube... As for the tube!!! Hate it... Had to let 8 central line trains go by before I finally squeezed myself onto one... Thank god I rarely catch the underground...
