From the rear side cover: The three contrasting suburbs of West, Upper, and South Norwood were founded early in the nineteenth century on land that had previously been open common. The area had only a handful of country pubs until then, but as the three communities developed large numbers of new ones were built to serve the growing population... and in its victorian heyday Norwood had well over 100 hotels, inns, taverns and beerhouses....
This book tells the story of over ninety of those pubs, and includes more than a hundred fascinating black and white photographs
