A couple of people have recently commented on old posts because they’re trying to track down specific pubs as part of family history projects. We haven’t been much help, but there are some helpful resources out there.
1. Ewan‘s photo sets are fascinating. This Flickr set of 400+ photos of derelict, closed or repurposed pubs is a particular favourite of ours.
2. Deadpubs.co.uk has a lot of historical information about former tenants and landlords, as well as photos of many establishments.
4. Many local libraries now offer free online newspaper searches and photo libraries, like this excellent one for the London Borough of Hackney which allows you to filter specifically for pubs.
Any other suggestions?
