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.

Yiewsley is a town just north of Heathrow Airport. The postcard (by W H Applebee) shows the Marlborough Cinema, opened in 1923, renamed to the Ritz in 1956 and closed in 1960. The films being shown are East Lynne and My Son. The cinema stood almost opposite the Town Hall. Click the postcard to enlarge.
