Taverns of East Anglia Series 1 2004
Watson Miscellaneous Trade Cards Taverns of East Anglia Series 1 2004 Taverns of East Anglia Series 1 2004 M52 - This is a collection of first-class drawings by John Watson of old public houses in Norwich and the surrounding district, with text backs describing their history. The reputed, oldest, the Adam and Eve, was built in 1949 to quench the thirst of workmen building the Norman cathedral, although the nearby Maids Head is the oldest English inn provable by documentary records from 1287. Alas the local brewers such as Morgans, Bullards, Steward & Patterson, Lacons etc, have all been swallowed up by the big boys since the war, although thank goodness, most of the pubs retain their historic names. Size 91 x 62mm.
