    George Hotel, High Street, Harlow

    George Hotel, High Street, Harlow pre 1908

    The George, an old coaching inn, pre 1908

    George Hotel, High Street, Harlow 1909

    The George, on the  day of the Essex Show in 1909

    This postcard of Harlow High Street - information is as follows:

    Looking directly across across the road from where the photographer was standing, the gabled building you see on the left hand corner is he Gables Inn. On the right hand, corner just behind the lamp post is the George hotel, an old coaching inn. Behind the George and on the same side of the street, with a long sign on its corner advertising ales etc is the Marquis Of Granby pub. If you walked through the gap between the George and the Marquis, you'd be facing the Chequers Pub in Back Street. Walk 30 yards or so to the left of the Chequers and you come to the Crown Pub in Back Street. This part of Harlow probably had so many pubs for a (then) smallish village because the road directly in front of the photographer is the old London Road which runs up to Cambridge and Harlow would have been one of the stopovers on this old coaching route. All five pubs mentioned are still there, though only the Marquis, Crown and Chequers still trade as pubs. The George was at one time a wool shop and is now an estate agents and mortgage brokers. The Gables is now a restaurant.
