This photo was taken through the mirror, with some of the locals sitting in the new lounge. 1967.

The new lounge was added to the Forge Bar taking over an adjoining licensed grocer's shop. The alterations meant that up to 180 people could be seated in the lounge. An unusual feature in the lounge was the fiberglass walls and a goat hair carpet laid out in green and brown squares.
