HASH(0x88c08cb4) out of 5 stars Fine For Architecture, Interior Photos and British Culture 14 Nov. 2013
By James Ellsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and English Heritage teamed up to produce this fine book on the history of the public house (pub). Coverage is mainly of England with some attention to Wales, Scotland and Ireland. "Licensed to Sell" has a good balance between text and photos and the photos show a good balance between exterior and interior shots of exemplary public houses, particularly those who have been in business for a while. Some attention is also given to outstanding examples of pubs whose decor and architecture best represent particular periods. Photos are generally full color and there are very fine ones of bars and back bars included.

Many tourists to Britain plan to visit at least one pub and this book will give them a great starting point from which to appreciate the pub as an institution. Other CAMRA guides will be essential in aiding travelers to find the best pubs in the places they will visit. All in all, this book makes a fine coffee table/souvenir item for lovers of British culture and for those who want to remember 'real ale' and the places that serve it.
