Deptford pubs

Whatever is happening at ground level, the rooflines of Victorian pubs often bear pictorial witness to their origins. This selection of Deptford pubs illustrates the point:

The Swan has kept its name, but was once a hotel with this elegant symbol on its corner.


A jaunty date adorns the Little Crown, still on New Cross Road.


The Red Lion & Wheatsheaf is gone, but its tiles remain.


Goldsmith's Tavern was once the New Cross House.


The Harp, or Harp of Erin, is still opposite the end of Deptford High Street.

The Harp of Erin was and probably still is a real rough boozer!
