Chairman's Day Out last Monday 11th July saw the 13 39 Club members be escorted by a Blue Badge guide, Dr Barry Walsh for an exclusive guided walk around St James' and Mayfair. The tour took us into Floris perfumers, Christies auction house, the beautiful Wren St James' church and a private tour of 150 year old John Lobb's the shoemakers which was a fascinating insight. Large thanks to Dr Barry Walsh our guide, who was able to organise these private tours of places we have all walked past over time in our own backyard.
The lively lunch followed at the Kings Head in Albemarle and Stafford Street where close by, 60 years previously, the first 39 Club meeting was held in
1956 at the Duke of Albemarle.
