The subject of this book is unusual and covers new ground hitherto little explored. The public house forms an integral part in the life of the nation, and its importance in the programme of reconstruction must therefore in no way be overlooked. The rebuildings of public houses in our cities, towns and villages were especially numerous between the two world wars, and individually many of these new buildings show how high a standard of general improvement was reached. In addition to the 63 plates an even larger number of typical plans illustrate the text.
