As a private hire driver back in the early 90s, I used to pick up customers from Winstons regularly.
It was always difficult to keep a straight face after one of my colleagues commented "Everybody you pick up from there smells of baby oil...."

If it aint broke.........Break it!

Didn't a French bloke design this paint job? I seem to remember reading in the YEP at the time?
It's quite good for French lettering!

Thanks for some great responses there - the picture there seems to be the Winstons that was near Hyde Park (in Kirkstall) so great to know where exactly it was located. Also thanks for some great info about entrance fee and what it was like inside - really helps me when trying to write something about it.
