Re: Pub near the Scout House in Jamaica Road

It was also known as Boatman's, and in its latter days it was renamed 'The Boatman'. It has been demolished within the last couple of years and a block of flats built in its place.

You're right - that is the same building. It is now offices. I'll get the description corrected.

No, the caption is in error; it isn't any of the pubs that were in Park Street, and I don't know where it is.
