Emptying the Ship and Royal.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 21 June 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A little bit of impromptu street entertainment was enough to empty the Ship and Royal pub at the junction of King Street and Mile End Road, South Shields.
You have to be pretty good to be able to entice a man away from the bar!
