A selection of 50 odd former Charrington pubs in London, each with then-and-now photos with a brief description.

The pubs selected are from thousands of pub photos of Charrington's pub estate produced by their surveyors. The photos were rescued just in time before they were unbelievably to be skipped to oblivion.
The Historypin organisation worked with former owners, landlords and ladies, and former drinkers and locals to produce histories of many pubs.
The author has summarized the information to produce pithy historical note for each pub.
Excellent pictorial historical record of some London pubs.
