Two obvious pubs together - "The Red Lion" and "The Royal Blenheim".

I'm not familiar with Deptford so this was a pleasant mystery to me. I loved 1933!

They're not all from Deptford (which actually makes it more difficult - sorry!).

1933 is lovely, but a particularly sad one. It was on the Grand Pier at Weston Super Mare, which has since burned down.

The second one is the Temple gateway in Fleet St. North House I know and can't place - is it the parade of shops next to New Cross Station? The Carnegie Library in Lewisham Hill is there, and the College of Arms in Queen Victoria Street. Is the first one St Paul's Deptford?
Some of the pubs look familiar but I'm not usually looking at the date as I go in....

CarolineLD said...

Second one is indeed Temple gateway; Carnegie Library correct too. First one and North House are not in London. And yes, most of the pubs were closed when I took their photos!!

ChrisP said...

Ah...I wondered why North House looks so familiar - it is in Chichester opposite the pie shop.
Having got the hint, a few of those dates looks suspiciously French...

CarolineLD said...

It is! And yes, there are a few French ones in there (all towards the beginning, I think).
