Inhaltsangabe: The Pub, with its unique ambience of cigar smoke and beer, dartboards and good conversation, is beloved of Londoners and tourists alike. Through the centuries, the Pub has been a center of British, and particularly, London, social life - and English equivalent, it might be said of the Parisian or Roman café. Dr. Johnson, Dickens and other literary greats mingled with their fellow citizens in Public Houses, and today, every foreign visitor to London should place an evening at a Pub high on his list of priorities during his stay there. In this book, Timothy M. Richards and James Stevens Curl guide the reader through the history of many of London's most colorful and popular pubs, including up-to-date information concerning the business hours, specialties and lore of those pubs still dispensing beer and atmosphere in 1973. The many illustrations that enhance the book combined with the text to make City Of London Pubs a delight for the armchair traveler and a "must" for everyone planning a trip to London. --- from book's dustjacket
