London Local Pubs Past & Present
London Local Pubs Past & Present
  • Description

London Local Pubs Past and Present is a celebration of local pubs that are steeped in social history.

They have played a role in publicans’ and regulars’ lives since they were first built and continue to fulfil that community purpose. They are places of historic significance, even if their architecture has radically changed over the years.

This book focuses on what these pubs meant to locals in the past and what they mean to locals and licensees today. It contains never-seen-before archival images from Charrington’s surveyors department, which provide a backdrop for anecdotes and photographs that are contributed by regulars, staff and landlords and drawn together by well-known writer Adrian Tierney-Jones.

Address details for each pub and a map allow the reader to explore these fascinating spaces for themselves. The book is connected to crowdsourcing platform Historypin.org, where locals and publicans of each pub can contribute additional materials and keep the story of these community institutions alive.

This book has been created as part of the Europeana Food and Drink project.

Imprint: PiXZ Books. ISBN 978 0 85710 099 3, hardback, 210x148mm, 144 pages. Published October 2015.
