Thanks to Charles we now have a fine selection of old flyers. The streets of Soho and particularly Piccadilly Circus were flooded with these handouts in the sixties to the extent that I believe Westminster actually banned them? But they are also memories - I saw one was marked Tony. Wonder if that was Tony Smith from Bournemouth.
well done Adrian, i am sure those beautiful old Flyers will bring back beautiful memories to many of us.. love the ones of Le Kilt and La Poubelle...
It was me the Tony, I was the manager from 66/69 this Birdland card was designed by Richard Fox Printer and myself.
The name Tony is on a card from the Scotch. But of course I remember you at Birdland - and remember Dick the printer. A lot of these cards were drawn by Barry - who's name I remember but can't put a face to him
Great collection, Adrian and Charles. Lovely to see them.

Indeed a great collection. I also remember quite a few of them, although some of them must be from later than 1969 when I left London. I, too, remember Dick, and like you, Adrian, I can't put a face on Barry. Great memories from several of the clubs. In Die Fledermaus I was the first DJ. Le Kilt was my second "home", and then The Scotch with all the incredible events!!
One of those fold-over Le Kilt cards Martin issued to me as life membership card which he kept behind the desk. Said I would always be able to get in free if I ever came back. When I came back many years later they didn't know what I was talking about and I had to pay to get in. C'est la vie!
You should have mentioned my name! No but it's funny how we thought ourselves immortal and everything was forever!
