Cossack Club, Bloom Street

Seen here in 1973, the Cossack Club was on the south side of Bloom Street, not far from the Thompsons Arms.  The owner was known as 'Russian Dave' who drove flash American cars, and an unlikely suggestion that he is in fact television's David Dickinson today; more likely is the one that says he went on to have a garage in Leigh [1].  It's possible that a previous location for the Cossack Club was on Bootle Street, where Slack Alice was opened by George Best, where Russian Dave was also reported to own the Cossack Club, a blues/jazz club [2].
