Raise a glass to this nostalgic celebration of the London pub in all its non-socially-distanced glory. Without its pubs, London just wouldn’t be London. They are the
backbone and the heart – not to mention the liver – of our city. This collection of vintage photographs is a glorious reminder of the pre-pandemic joys of jostling at the bar whilst also showcasing
the classic design of the traditional pub, from large lounges to secretive backrooms and smoky bars. Celebrating the bartenders, musicians, gamblers and chancers that congregate to get one more round in, these uplifting images show us tipsy Londoners at their best – reveling in community, friendship and the art of letting loose.
Part of the Vintage Britain series: collectable books celebrating the recent history of these isles through beautiful photography.
