Ecobhoy please desist, you have taken my memories back twice now. πŸ˜›

The Griffin very handy at lunchtime (just a short walk up Elmbank Street) from 314 St Vincent Street where I worked. The Griffin was three pubs at that time, and if my memory serves me, the Griffinette, Griffin, and Griffini.
I remember standing at the bar “getting them in” when a voice I recognised on my right requested a round, when I looked I was face to face with the Reverend I M Jolly, fresh from a stint at the Kings.
I think I muttered, oh hello, and moved on.
I am also sure this was the first pub I had been in with a sign in the entrance “NO FOOTBALL COLOURS”

“JC(e) I think that reputation, along with that of the State Bar in Holland Street.”

This is never ending, the State Bar, best steak pie in Glasgow and where I fell in love with Orkney dark island. Later I found an online supplier BeeRitz. Not completely off topic, as I understand Walter Smith had a stake in the pub (pun intended.) πŸ˜†

“you must have been dying of thirst when you got there!…”

Worked one up, and the length of the walk timed it to perfection. πŸ˜›

Am I wholly mistaken, or was that fabled animal/bird not done at one time ( early/middle 1970s?) for having permitted to be consumed on the premises some non-alcoholic, but also non-licensed, baccy-related refreshment?

( early/middle 1970s?) Ah not guilty gov,frequenting Saints and Sinners Bar St Vincent Steet at that time honest. πŸ˜†

However I did have a perfect excuse to frequent licenced premises at any time of day or night if I wished. The company I worked for between 1974 and 1997 was the only one to offer Loss of Licence (alcohol) Insurance (that’s my “cover” blown) πŸ™„

To take another slant on things – what name is on the various insurance policies in force at Ibrox and, in particular, the liability cover for employees and the public. I would be very surprised if it was in the name of the β€˜club’ because as we all know it isn’t a legal entity


Around the end of January 1971, I was working for a well known Insurance Company in St Vincent Street Glasgow, when I received a call from Alexander Stenhouse Insurance Brokers 145 St Vincent Street, Glasgow (just up the road) requesting a qoute for an increase in public liability insurance cover from Β£125,000 to Β£1,000,000. In those days that kind of sum needed to be referred to a superintendent due to a requirement for reinsurance to be looked at, so I pulled the file and placed it on his desk without saying a word.

The policy was in the name of Rangers Football Club Ltd, and he and I both knew instantly the reason for the request.

Your post reminded me. πŸ™
