View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This celebration of the London pub on the eve of the Second World War was based on much informal research by friends and 'regulars' Maurice Gorham and Edward Ardizzone. Gorham's discussions of pub features such as the Saloon Lounge, the Public Bar and Barmaids are illustrated with vividly coloured lithographs by Ardizzone. The book is back in print 70 years after much of the stock was destroyed in the Blitz, with a new Introduction by Michael Yorke.

Product Description:

The Local takes us through the pubs of London on the eve of the Second World War. With Edward Ardizzone and Maurice Gorham as our guides, we experience a vanished world of tin whistle musicians, Jug-and-Bottle and Ladies' Bars, games of dominoes, pints of mother-in-law and wallop. Edward Ardizzone remains one of Britain's best-loved artists.
