This photo was in the local paper in Bridgwater recently. It shows a queue for hot cross buns outside a bakery in 1946. Of course we were more interested to see the livery on the Starkey, Knight and Ford pub in the background.
The pub’s not there anymore, but my parents remember going there the day after they were married to keep warm during a power cut.
This sign advertising the range of Charrington’s beers is about two metres square and now sits on the side of an otherwise very plainly decorate budget-conscious hotel on Markhouse Road, Walthamstow. It’s one of our very favourites.
A lazy post for Friday — here are a few more bits of old pub livery we’ve come across on our travels. Click on them for bigger versions.
The Chequers, Walthamstow Market
Two more bits of old pub livery spotted on Mare Street in Hackney at the weekend.
