UK pub history and historical Street directory

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.

My grandfather was the manager of this pub, which was owned by a relative by marriage. He was given the job about the time he married into the family in 1907 and stayed until called up in 1916. I think he the moved to North London after the war. His name was George Henry John Holland, known to all as Jack. His wife was Ellen Maria, and she collected china ornaments which customers would bring back from their holidays. The marriage broke down before 1916 & she moved out with her son. *
