|Just a glance into America's version of "outside a pub" - 1926 silent comedy film "The Strong Man" featuring actor Harry Langdon and famous director Frank Capra.|
Greetings or ahoy! Could you bring us some more ale please? Alan's theme this week is a photo of Trafalgar Tavern (not in it's glory days) but it's still inspiring with so many options again! Sepia Saturday friends I invite you to the world of fascinating Pubs of yesterday, most still serving their eager guests today with a bit of ale and Bangers and Mash, and they all have some ordinary magical mystery lurking behind their stone walls. If you feel like sharing something as well, you can by going here
We begin in half-light, casting mysterious shadows across an unchanged landscape of yesterday's pubs still alive today......just show us your commanding beauty...and share a few of your long lost tales.....
First stop American style Pub in Hartford, Connecticut where I first met a traditional "Pub."

Often they are more than just a Pub! Like St. Christopher's Inn, located in Bath, England.
|An enchanting evening at a delightful pub....."The St. Christopher's Inn" a Bar and Hostel, in Bath, England. Great youth hostel accommodations, very reasonable and close to all the Bath hot spots.|
Did someone order another round?
