Great post over at Spitalfields Life, with some fantastic vintage photography recording “a lost world of the public house as the centre of the community in the nineteen sixties.”

Shift work on Fleet St gave Tony free time in the afternoon that he spent in the pub which was when these photographs, published here for the first time, were taken. “Tony loved East End pubs,” Libby recalled fondly, “He loved the atmosphere. He loved the relationships with the regular customers. If a regular didn’t turn up one night, someone would go round to see if they were alright.”
