Pubs in Lincoln: A History - The City Inns, Public Houses, Beerhouses, Breweries and Maltings, edited by Andrew Walker
Booklet published by the Survey of Lincoln, 76 pages. A5 size booklet (N6822)
From the rear side cover: The theme of this edited collection - Lincoln's pubs and breweries through time - forms a prominent aspect of the city's society, culture and economy. The chapters range mainly over 200 years from the early nineteenth century and explore various buildings and structures within the city that were - or continue to be - associated with some aspect of the drinks trade.
The volume examines breweries, maltings, inns, public houses, beerhouses and, in at least one chapter, premises that provided a clear alternative to alcohol. In addition to examining the buildings themselves, the volume explores the many and various uses made by Lincoln's inhabitants and visitors of these often prominent and much-visited buildings. Alongside the chapters' text are historic images, contemporary photos and a map plotting the location of Lincoln's pubs, beerhouses and main breweries and maltings in their nineteenth-century heyday.
Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover
