London is famous for its pubs, there’s no doubt about that, with many of them being hundreds of years old.
Now Historypin has launched a crowdsourcing project in a bid to help record the history of these public meeting houses of London.
“We’re working with locals, landlords, staff and historians to create a shared history of great boozers in and around London. This includes gathering stories and photographs through collecting events in pubs as well as online crowdsourcing on the Pubs of London project page.”
While Historypin are grateful for photographs, stories or memories relating to any London pub, they are looking at 12 London pubs in particular.
- Magpie and Stump, Old Bailey
- Old Eagle, Royal College Street, Camden
- Queen’s Head, Acton Street, King’s Cross
- The Hope, West Street, Carshalton, Surrey
- Duke’s Head, High Street, Highgate
- The Alma, Newington Green Road, Stoke Newington
- Red Lion and Sun, North Road, Highgate
