It's finally come to this -- Doyle's closed in October and now all of the great historical memorabilia that decorates the old pub will be auctioned on Wednesday morning. The good news? Well, you can own a piece of history of Doyle's.
The auction is taking place on the premises at Doyle's (3484 Washington St.) on Wednesday, Nov. 6, starting at 11 am -- and it seems like everything must go! Only cash, certified funds, or a bank letter guaranteeing payment of your check are being accepted, according to the auction listing. You must pay a $200 deposit to get a bidders card, which is refundable.
What's for sale you ask? Your standard restaurant stuff: ice cream freezer, all the wooden booths, chairs, gas convection ovens.
But it's the memorabilia that adorns the walls and the inside of the restaurant is what many of us really want! The old E. Howard & Co. clock from the 1800s, public telephone booths, war posters, Franklin Park prints, beer signs and mirrors. The beautiful murals are for sale, photos and signs from Boston mayors -- Curley, Menino, White, Flynn and Walsh. Photos of Kennedy, Clinton, Walsh, Warren, Brown. And even the signs on the outside of the building, according to the auction site.
