This Guy is Dragged into a Pub

I was dragged into a pub today. I didn’t want to go but my wife insisted. We were in Victoria on Vancouver Island.
The pub was the Bard and Banker.I thought nothing of it at first, till that is I discovered that the building had been a bank and Robert Service had worked there. He also lived in an apartment above the bank
Now you might ask who he was. I would reply in shocked mode,he was the Yukon poet. He wrote The Shooting of Dan McGrew and many other poems that record the days of the gold rush.
He is my favourite poet.
How cool was that?
