Aylesbury, The Old King's Head Hotel 1921

More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, The Old King's Head Hotel 1921: This view looks through the entrance towards the inn yard, all of which survives to this day.

My other grandad, Rowland Towersey, was a basket maker with a shop which, during the war, became Bucks Bullion. Then it moved to the High Street in the 50's. The pub in Kingsbury is Rockwood not Rockwell, (...Read full memory)
