Yes Will, I do remember the guy with a roses behind his ears, saw him quite often but didn't know he was a flower seller.

Yes the Algerian Coffee Stores is still there.

Re the Scotch House where Bruce Dunnet once ran a folk club and which the IRA once bombed is still there but re-named the Spice of Life. We met up with some friends there recently to go for a meal thinking it was going to be an Indian Restaurant but it was just a meeting point for a pre meal drink. The Mynah Bird has gone.

Will did you ever go to the Swiss House opposite almost the Algerian Coffee Stores. There was a guy there with the appearance of Buffalo Bill that used to eat light bulbs. I think he was a wrestler.
