The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time. Why not join us, there is no cost in getting involved, and any contribution to pub history is welcome. To contact the pubs history site, please email deadpubs<
A directory of thousands of London public houses in London, in 1944. The site is not just aimed at the many public houses which still exist or have existed over the years. This is an alternative view of London over the past 200 years using pubs as a means of mapping the London street directory. This version of the 1944 Pub directory is sorted by post code. This listing currently excludes the 1944 Beer Retailers at present. The 1944 London directory, inventorized by the modern postcode Index system of pubs (I think). Just follow the links, and enjoy.
