The Thursday Quote

“Get the pub ready for the day. Rolling kegs with TOOHEYS and RESCHS stamped on their metal girdles up from the cellar on a wooden ramp – and, God, they were heavy – and into the bars; the public bar at the front, and the ladies’ lounge at the rear. The familiar smell of stale beer was in everything, wafting through the rooms and across the verandahs like cheap perfume at a hens’ night.”
