Haringey in north London encompasses the former boroughs of Tottenham, Horsey and Wood Green and the earliest known inn may be traced back to 1455. The book illustrates the development of the area and the effects of road and rail transport as reflected in its pubs. Other pub connections examined are those of festivals and sport (Tottenham Hotspur football). The section on breweries and bottlers is illustrated with photos of former local breweries and associated trades and effects. Concluding the book are 3 unusual and interesting chapters on Off-Licences, Beer Tankards & Tokens and the Temperance movement in the area.
