The Erimus, Middlesbrough, Yorkshire


The Erimus was situated on Newton Street. Publican in 1893 was John Rutherford.
This is where I had my first pint.  Well it was a pint of shandy actually but I WAS legal at the time.  I sat down to enjoy my 'pint' and a bit of conversation and after a while I had got so far with it before feeling a great urge to visit the small room.  In there I unexpectedly sluiced off like a police horse.  Slightly bemused I returned to my seat and my pint and drank some more, and blow me if the same process didn't happen all over again.  Understandably I was getting a bit worried by then as I was not aware of the diuretic properties of alcohol.  Returning to my drink I got a bit further down and had to visit the room again - but I was getting used to it by then. Those were the days!
