I suffer with a belief in whether the pages I add to the sites are of any use to anyone. I guess I am just a bit knackered. The good news is I had an inspiration today, I spotted an anomaly (error), on one of the pages which led me to finding a rather excellent […]
Well, I have a number of sites, as you may well know. My best site is of pub history, with about 50,000 pages – but it is not actually that good. It lists all of the pubs over a 200 year time span, excluding anything after 1944, except some modern listings. The problems are, it […]
I continue my additions to the various sites I run. My current interest is in London history, and where I am going to visit every day shortly, when I get my 60+ London free travel pass, you have no idea how excited I am about getting this! I have also decided that my main site […]
I continue to add entries to the London 1940 street directory, this will take some time. Here are a few more for S: I continue adding entries for all of the London site, either old pubs, or random updates. It’s what I do.
I am always attempting to understand why I run all of these pub history sites. I think I am slowly getting a better idea. Whenever I wander in London, I look at the various modern buildings and streets, and start to visualize them as I see them in, for example, the John Rocques map of […]
That sums it up nicely, a lot of Westminster pubs exist in 2018. I will keep this brief, as I have been updating the Westminster pubs for 2018 all day, and I am impressed with the numbers of pubs which still exist, and this excludes many of the newer bars and Wetherpoon pubs etc. etc.
I have little idea of whether people actually read this blog, but it’s a personal blog on the updates on a rather excellent pub history site I am building. In fact, I have been building this pub history site for a number of years, in fact, nearly twenty years. I am currently watching a film […]
I have been updating the site to add modern postcodes. One area was St Clement Danes. This area includes Aldwych (modern), Drury lane and the Strand. It soon becomes apparent that the Strand is an easy area to work with, as numbering seems to stay the same through history. Large parts of this area are […]
I am placing a request to everybody. I have no idea whether anyone reads any of my blogs, or visits any of my sites, but hey ho. I am looking for any pictures of any railway stations, either underground, or over the top. I do not yet have the time to visit all of these. […]
My pages on these were not bad, but David Elis-Williams sent me details of articles written by him, and these add richly to the early life of these three public houses, well, two really. The White Hind, later the Fox; and the Antigallican, later the Royal Standard. Both detail the early references to the earlier […]
