WHAT'S IN A NAME ?

Idle.

In Britain ,is an organisation ,today called the Club Institute Union [ C.I.U. ] ,when it was first formed it was known as Working Men's Clubs,.
Working men formed their own clubs to meet their needs ,that pubs didn't. Cheap beer,Indoor
sports, and entertainment in a Concert room. etc. That's not the Name i refer to. ---- In a district of Bradford in West
Yorkshire England called Idle is a club, with the unfortunate name. ---- My Club is in York, and for a day out i often go to
Knaresborough to the club there. It has a balcony with a great view..000_0015.JPG000_0017_0001.JPG100_2427.jpg100_2429.jpglarge_100_2428.jpg

Thanks for sharing, Alec!The entrance looks very modest, but the balcony view is stunning indeed...

Working Men's clubs are still pretty popular in the north east but I've never come across one with such an amusing name!

The CIU Headquarters is around the corner from where I work on Upper Street in Islington, North London.

The building was redeveloped some time ago and now on the ground floor houses a Weatherspoon's pub and alongside a McDonalds.
