Few social institutions have had so central a place in British life as the pub. "The Pub and the People", the second Mass-Observation book to be included in The Cresset Library, looks at the pub in 1930's British life. Through the eyes and words of the 'observers', and in Humphry Spender's stark and arresting photographs of pub scenes, we get a glimpse of the bars, the drinkers, the conversation and a community where the pub was the heart of the social life.
