  1. I cant find any reference to the Lancaster Pub in Lancaster rd Preston, it was opposite the Spindlemakers arms I was a waiter there in 1962 I would love a picture of this pub where I worked.

    1. Hello Tom, Sorry for the delay. The original idea was to include all those that were in existence up to WW1, but I've since added available material after that date. I remember the Lancaster well, although I didn't go in it more than a handful of times. I have included the Brunswick because I spent far too much time in there, although material for either place is thin on the ground. If you can tell me much about the Lancaster, I'll try and get round to adding it. Thanks for your interest anyway.
