I have spent a little (lot) of time adding beer retailers and beer houses to the pub history site, as have many of the people who have helped me update this site as a truly wonderful site about pub history.
I know it looks boring, but I think it is a wonderful masterpiece about these unknown places in history.
In retrospect, I made a big issue of adding every named public house in 1899, and I think I have almost achieved this, with one or two still missing.
Today, I thought I would check to see how may of the beer houses that were un-named at the time, in the beer retailer directories, were actually listed on the site. I also started this for 1910, and am working through the many lists I have built, and adding links as they exist.
This is largely driven at present by Ewan of the pubology site, blame him! He keeps my desire going to update this pub history site; as it continues to build.
