    The project for the new year is social clubs. I've done a few now and I have really enjoyed them. They are usually a little slice of the 50's and 60's, and as with cinemas with enough raking and poking you'll usually turn up something of interest.

    Tile hill social is a pretty big club, built in the same style of the rest of the area which drips in post war style. It always amazes me how big these places are. The club scene was well into it's demise by the time I was going in them so I have never seen one full to capacity. My memories of them were everyone sat in long rows, shoddy wallpapering and clouds of blue swirling somke. Oh and every sign in the place saying "By order of the comittee"!

    In the 50's and 60's, clubs were a large part of people's lives, with sporting teams, activities for the kids and women's clubs and teams. There were coach trips, plays, and activities for the elderly community.

    But as with all these things, it's all very well and good folks complaining when it's closed, but if people were using it then it would still be open! I don't think people want to go and sit in rows watching amature cabaret in the 21st Century, I know I don't!

    Boxing pictures, originally on the wall of the club's boxing room? Whatever the room was, it was lost when the stage was extended in the 70's

    The pictures in situ. I would assume the room would have been under the original stage.

    Note three suspended ceilings. I guess when one became yellowed by fags they just bashed another over the top!
