Brian - Omeath didn't really have a lot
of shops, considering the amount of people
that would disembark there.
There was just that strip once you
got off the boat.
Great photo.

Ah now Maureen, don't you know the main draw was the well-stocked pubs?

Nice postcard and stirs some memories.

Pat - Yes I guess so.

I know they had some stalls along the
pier as you got off the boat.

Of course the bubble gum and the yellow
something (forget what it was called)
were nice to go over for.

I remember Peggy's Leg as a straight rock.

I think Maureen is talking about " Yellow Man."

As in the line from the song " Dulse and Yellow Man ".

Tony, thank goodness you came up with the answer Yellow - or as we called it - Yellaw Man!
I have been wrecking my brains ever since xpaddy posed this question trying to think what it
was called. I'll be able to sleep now!
