The wall at the back has been  bricked up so, a better view of the new extension not  now possible. What about the new frontage though?


By the way, people were working at Vertigo next door, cleaning equipment and furniture.

Not a fan of the new frontage at all.... at least they are progressing well, no doubts it will be packed out with punters in a few months 🍺

Nor me, I don’t think the Portakabin type toilet in the middle of the terrace is very becoming! LOLLOLLOL

 Re Sir Harrys (Harry Warner)Can anyone remember the local Algarve  English newspapers (online)  ie Portugal News, Algarve Resident etc   having an archive section where you could search old news. I remember reading about Harry Warner & his wife coming to Albufeira in the  1960's or thereabouts  to open a bar and would love to read it all over again but sadly now can't find anything appertaining to it. Only thing I found was about  when he died, https://www.portugalresident.com/harry-warner/ 

Edit: I seem to recall also from reading  news, that  many years ago he had something to do with The Ancora Bar on The strip as well  when it first opened. I could be dreaming though.

 Does anyone know the history of Harry Warner and his wife?

If you get a copy of Jenny Grainers book “Falais Portuguese or are you English?”, first edition, the picture on the cover of several people, including Jenny, also includes Harry. They are having a coffee on the pavement outside Bailotte. That is very early 60’s if not before.
My copy is in Portugal so I can’t at the mo, post you a pic or check the date.

Obviously they are in no rush. No-one working as it was Sunday, but there was a stack of cement bags along with other stuff at the front. Maybe I will sneak out into town later in the week to see what's going on.
