We’re featuring memories, pictures and mementoes from the famous club all this week, and hope to bring back lots of happy memories among folk of a certain age.
Thanks are due to David Golden and brothers Rob and Tom Quinn, the road manager and members of The Crusaders, who regularly played at La Strada, and Tommy Flynn, its official photographer, for sharing their images and items with us.
Rob, Tom and David share some more of their memories tomorrow.
