“Time gents, drink ’em up”, was the barman’s call as six o’clock approached and the taps were turned off for another day. The six o’clock swill was Australian and New Zealand slang for the last-minute rush to buy drinks before the 6pm closing of pubs during a significant part of the 20th century. Time Gents is a collection of pub histories, stories yarns, legends and traditions, by journalist and blogger, Mick Roberts.
