Lloyds Bar - The Silk Kite, Church Street, Tamworth UK. 18th September 2009.


In August 2009 I was emailed to ask if I would help provide some images for the new Lloyds Bar (The Silk Kite) that was opening in Tamworth in the old Chicagos Rock bar that used to be there.

The new owners wanted various images from Tamworth’s history and so I was only too happy to help with the Reliant wall.

The new bar opened on September 18th and so I went down there with my girlfriend and was delighted to see not one, but three large frames full of the pictures I had provided. Better still, one of the frames contains a picture of the 1949 Reliant 8cwt van my brother drives and also one of Lucie, my 1961 Reliant Regal Mk VI van. That means I can now drink beer and look at my car!!

Next to the photo of Lucie is a caption that states the vehicle is owned by myself and also the centre picture that has a brief history of Reliant acknowledges
