I used to get in both of them pubs Brian.

The Crowtree was in Crowtree Road Sunderland, which would have been where the the top end of the Bridges shopping centre is, the pub would have been about where Debenhams is now.

The Laburnam is in Hendon Sunderland, but I think it has a different name these days.

If you go to Steve Dunn's Personal View of South Shields on https://www.facebook.com/groups/stevedunn/ you will see a series of photos of the Market Pubs that I have placed on the site including the Exchange, Market, Marine, Norfolk and Suffolk, Nunnerie, Tram, Grapes, City of Durham and the Lifeboat. There are still a few more to go. If anyone is interested, you have to request membership to the site which is a simple formality, but there are some cracking photos of old Shields.

Jeez, I remember Viv well. He was a good friend of Keith Tilly, who used to run the Duster when I worked there - 1976-1980.
Viv used to come in to the offie and shout along the counter at me "Hey, Paulie! You gonna let me in or what?" Then he'd smile sweetly until I let him through into the back. You know, he had a reputation as a hard man, and I heard a few tales from him and his friends, but he was always a gentleman to me.

Funny thing was, I moved to London in the early 80's, and one night in @ 83 or 84, I was having a drink with some friends in a pub called The Dolphin not far from St. Pancras station, round the back of Camden Town Hall, when this weird looking, Keith Richards look-alike came up to our group and says to me, "So you're a Geordie, eh? Then you'll know my brother, George. Most people know him as Viv, though." And I said, "from the Blue Parrot? Yeah, I know him well! He's a great eff'ing bloke! Good mate to those that know him." Made that guy's night, cos everyone else there he knew him thought he was a weirdo - you know - lots of homophobia in those days.

Used to be there were 21 pubs between the Ferry and the sea front. As a 21st birthday pub crawl, you would have a drink - probably not a pint, more likely a short, in each one, until the group got to the beach, and the birthday boy was thrown in the water!!

Good times!

Andy in the book of South Shields Pubs the three Indian Kings stood in the North West Corner of the Market Place where the Commando stood. The Three Indian kings was built in the 1700s until 1890.
