British pubs from the 50s, 60s and mainly 70s, a growing USA archive, postcards collected of St. Ives in Cornwall

This site consists of three main archives, with two mainly in monochrome and from scanned medium format negatives. Prints from this site, strictly for a one-off personal use, are available via Paypal but all commercial activity, including use on other websites, should be through a search on and for this reason the Alamy reference is given with each photo.

The larger archive is of public houses of the nineteen seventies with an emphasis on the south and south-west of England. Many of these pubs are either closed, been converted or been demolished after these photos were taken in around 1973-4. A small amount of shots are from the 50s and 60s where indicated and the introduction of contemporary photos is ongoing.

A smaller archive consists of roll film negatives that were received in no particular order, not catalogued and with a vague understanding only that some were from California USA. Any help with identification would be appreciated. From my dating of a car and a guitar and some fashion hints I believe the archive runs from the late nineteen forties through the nineteen fifties.

My collection of postcards of St. Ives in Cornwall is growing and added to this site when time allows. These are not for sale but are for the benefit of historians and family tree researchers. For this reason the contents of the postcards rear, including address, are given.
