The Granary rock club ran from 1968 until 1988 in a former grain warehouse in Bristol.
Al Read, seen here on the right, was one of four local musicians who started the club.
The infamous stairs had to be tackled by everyone going to the club, including the bands with their equipment.
A large number of well-known rock bands of today cut their teeth in front of the intimate crowds.
The club spanned two decades of music, seeing many different musical styles during its time.
The club became known as the home of rock.
The space was limited and basic compared to today, but it survived for twenty years.
The viewing area for the bands was spread over two floors, between the large pillars.
There were two bar areas in the club, one on the bottom floor, and one on the balcony.
If you were into rock music, then the club was the place to see music.
