The outline of the pub history site is to list ALL pubs of the last 200 years with detailed information on each, including their occupants and staff members; i.e. it is a genealogical search tool. It is never exhaustive, but it's pretty damned good so far. Please help me make it better if you have anything to add. Use the search engine to find pubs by name, publicans and bar staff by name, or just use it as a historical street directory - all detail on one site of about 50 thousand pages and over 10 thousand images. The site lists all counties in England, but some are sparse in content, whilst London and the South is very well documented. Use the links above to traverse the site; and if a search fails, type your search into google, find the relevant page on Ewans pubology site and it brings you back here again!Pub history Home - Pub history Menu - Email the pub history admin
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.
