Real ale enthusiasts remember the heady days of 10p a pint

ALE enthusiasts in York are taking a trip down memory lane, to celebrate the anniversary of a landmark moment in the city’s beer history.
Forty years ago this weekend, members of the fledgling Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) visited York for their third national AGM and conference.
As part of the weekend a “beer exhibition” was held at the De Grey Rooms in St Leonard’s Place, with ten beers on sale at 10p a pint.
Camra has since grown to become one of the most successful campaigning organisations in the country, and last year's beer and cider festival on Knavesmire featured more than 400 beers and 100 ciders, but local branch members are keen to hear from anyone who remembers that 1974 event.
They particularly want to hear from anyone who knows or knew Sandra Hall, who was pictured in this Evening Press photo at the time pulling a pint.
