The Prince Albert’s attempt to pass itself off as Central Station has been fundamentally undermined by some dodgy sticky backed plastic. Thanks to Henry S for this pic of the pub in Wharfdale Road, near Kings Cross.
I am indebted to Henry S for his photo of The Kings Arms (check the windows) in Northington Street, WC1, pretending to be ‘The Lady Ottoline’.
It’s The Woodman in Lee High Road, SE13, pretending to be a plumbers’ merchants called Berhams.
Here’s The Prince of Wales in Hampstead Road, NW1, pretending to be ‘Shaker & Company’.
Here’s the St Martin’s Tavern in Camden pretending to be a Japanese restaurant called Sen Nin.
