EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we are transported back to the vibrant atmosphere of the Smelters Arms pub at Castleside in County Durham during January 1979. The charismatic landlord, Colin Heslop, is seen indulging in a well-deserved pint as he sits inside an unconventional prop - a coffin placed right at the bar! This peculiar sight was not merely for amusement but served a noble purpose: raising money for charity. The image perfectly encapsulates the jovial spirit and camaraderie that defined British pubs in the 1970s. Amidst laughter and banter, men gathered around their favorite watering hole to unwind after a long day's work. And what better way to inject some humor into their evening than by sitting inside a coffin while enjoying their beloved beer? Colin Heslop's creative initiative showcases his dedication towards supporting charitable causes. By transforming an ordinary night out into something extraordinary, he managed to capture everyone's attention and encourage generous donations from patrons eager to be part of such an amusing spectacle. This snapshot serves as a testament to the power of community and how even seemingly mundane activities can be transformed into opportunities for giving back. It reminds us that sometimes all it takes is a touch of creativity and lightheartedness to make a significant impact on those in need. So let this delightful photograph transport you back in time, evoking memories of laughter-filled evenings spent with friends over pints of beer – all while contributing towards making our world
