Transcript for Ray Costello

I tell you another thing that came into being in the 60s which I was sort of too young to really bother with, but I remember my older cousins going down there and once again it was because of the sort of bohemian mix. I had a cousin who was a nurse and another cousin was a nursery nurse; you’d find them going in to Bold Street and some of the streets in town because of the coffee culture days. People didn’t drink half as much as they do now, it was coffee culture. It’s coming back, now you get full everywhere. You asked me before where I went in Liverpool One and it was immediately a coffee place.
