The pub opposite the shipping Federation was" The Red Lion", next one along towards Canning Place was "The Trawler Inn". In Canning Place was "The Flying Dutchman", "The Ymuiden"," The Custom House", two clubs in Canning Place, "City Members Club" and "The Neptune". Just off Canning Place in Sth Castle St was "The Belvidere" reputed to have the best draught Guiness in Liverpool also "The Dukes Crown" around the corner from Canning Place towards the Sth docks. In "The Dukes Crown" the Guiness tokens given to the Guiness employees on the Guiness boats for their free Guiness was accepted. Fervent draught Guiness drinkers travelled long distances to drink in the above two pubs.
