Spent a lot of time lately on Seaside venues , hoping to tempt out some London fans , and maybe Dr Death in Particular.
The Metropolitan had been a pub on this site even in the 1500's and rebuilt a few times keeping some original features. An old Irish pub and then a Music Hall. Tremendous building although had a reduced capacity of only 1500 in later years.
I believe the bill shown here was on the first night of what was to be three years of weekly wrestling and never Dale Martins.
Anyone remember it or go to wrestling there. Is it a known venue to us.
You will need a long memory as it was pulled down in 1963.
Look at my gallery for 1960.
I will add 61-63 over the next few days. My burning question to Paul Lincoln Experts is this. Do you think he was the promoter here in 1960. He was on seven times out of 25 bills , but other people were also lurking that could have got this off the ground , or could it have only been a Lincoln Promotion.
