Hampstead, London, Heath Street circa 1920. Postcard by Degen / Lewis. Surprisingly little has changed except the volume of traffic. Express Dairy is now Tesco Express. The clock tower in the distance housed the fire station until 1915. Click the postcard to enlarge.

Barking, Essex, The Bull Hotel, c1918. There are flags up outside the Bull Hotel, but I don't know what they are commemorating, possibly the end of The Great War. I've had this postcard for ages but ws unable to find the location until now. The pub was rebuilt in 1925 and has now closed down, possibly for good. Postcard by an unknown publisher.
