Readers who have material that they are prepared to share on this site, should send it to me at

This could take the form of family history details, stories relating to a property, or a photograph. All additions will be credited in the way you prescribe.

A new addition could benefit YOU! and vice versa; so, please keep it coming.

As time goes by I will show on this
page all the recent additions that  I've made
to the site, together with the appropriate links.
  By doing so, I will make it possible for those
viewers who have 'visited' a public house before,
to re-visit it to see what's new.
It may be the addition of a sentence or two, or
it could be a whole new story.

  1. If you think you can handle the work yourself, you should still consult with a builder who specializes in mobile home construction to make sure that your home can support an addition and advise where best to place it. construction companies san francisco
