1986 Beer Guide
The second guide we produced and the first usin
g a database (Datastar) and mailmerge.
In 1985 the branch started a project to photograph all the pubs in our area. It took
until 1994 before they were all done. We are now in the process of populating Whatpub with all these pictures. So far E1-E16 have been done and it has thrown up two
anomalies. In E14 the Marshall Keate at 29 Prestons Road does not appear in our database though it appears in our 1983 beer guide. It does appear with a line drawing in
the 1986 guide albeit on page 151 amongst the E15 pubs stating it had been demolished in 1986. In E16 the same can be said of Bentleys 23 Barking Road though there is
no mention of the pub anywhere in the 1986 guide. Formally the Bridge House it was demolished sometime after August 1988 when the above photograph was taken.
If you have any photos of our pubs from another era then
to us stating the date the photo was taken. Thanks to Sue who has sent two pictures.
