Islington pub updates – Hope & Anchor, 42 Barnsbury grove, Islington N7

I continue my updates for Islington pub history. I was tracing the Northern line along for my accessible transport site, this means visiting each station one at a time and taking some meaningful photographs of accessibility features, steps, gaps, raised platforms, step-free access, elevators, lifts, more steps, steps into waiting rooms, steps into the station entrance etc. – the Northern line is appalling at many of the stations.

In addition to this, I have added some superb pictures and history from Vincent, e.g. the Archway Tavern which has re-opened this year. I also visited this the other day, well, for a photograph.

Then I thought I would revisit some of the 1911 census summaries I work on, and added some additional detail, and the Hope & Anchor beerhouse at 42 Barnsbury grove. I do not know how much longer after 1944 it existed, but was there from at least 1891.

More updates to follow, lots more …
