Many accurate 1921 census transcriptions have already been added to the pub history site, including London, and parts of Middlesex. If you can contribute to the site, send me some details to Kevan, along with some description of the specific property.

I was sorting through some of my late parents' photographs and found a photograph labelled (by my mother) : ***
'Winnnie's sister outside own pub, Brighton'.
Winnie (Winifred Alice Eve, nee Poppleton, formerly Bland Hunt was my father's stepmother.

Rose Edna Campbell, nee Poppleton, outside the Star Inn, Manchester street; Brighton

Rose Edna Campbell, nee Poppleton, outside the Star Inn, Manchester street; Brighton

This is her sister Rose Edna Poppleton, who was born on 8th June 1908 in Lincoln. Rose later married on 15th September 1935 to Cecil Ewin Campbell b. 21st September 1897.
Initially they lived and worked in London, and at the Tiger Tavern, at 1 Tower Hill; but must have moved to Brighton at some point possibly after WW2.
Cecil died in 1971 and Rose on 15th February 1977. I am assuming that they probably owned and ran the Star, in Brighton, in the 1950's and 60's. ***
