Albion Inn

This was the HQ of the St John's Veterans' Association of which my Grandad was a member (he's on the back row marked by a cross).

As you can see the main building was an old (?ex-War Department) Nissen hut that arrived around 1952 I think. Then a year or two later, at the back (out of sight here) the lower deck of an old Halifax Corporation tram was attached to give even more room for the interminable games of dominoes and cards they played while waiting for the Albion, just across the road as you say Graham Bedford, to open.
