Uni: Scenes of Plymouth and the PPSU Bar, Plymouth Polytechnic, Devon - 28th April 1986

A round-up of two sets of negatives, which may or may not be contemporaneous, showing various scenes around Plymouth and the Barbican, as well as some PPSU bar life - in particular some behind-the-bar action and a photo of the ill-fated SU Burger bar (which pre-dated the equally ill-fated Cap'n Jasper's annex by a couple of years).
