High Street, Romford , circa 1900

The Coach & Bell was rebuilt around 1895, and demolished in 1956. On the right of the picture can clearly be seen the Ind Coope Brewery, these buildings still exist today as a listed building, until they 'by chance' burn down for the sake of new development.

If you know Romford, you will recognise this as London Road, where the current Woolworths exists, and a parade of shops that include Mintz, Kerrs, Brentwood Nylons, Morgans shoe shop & the Romford Recorder offices. I think I prefer it pre-1956. What a cracking Public House. Boots had moved to South Street by 1914.
You may find that Mintz has gone, something to do with 'playing with young boys' if I remember. I may be wrong, but paedophiles exist around every corner.
