This photograph was sent in by Lucy Bunnage and shows the frontage of the Royal Oak public house at Langstone, near Havant, a century ago.
Thanks to Ralph Cousins, who tells me that it shows the Little family and the lad to front is Sid Little. To the rear can be seen the local postman.
It appears that several of the windows have been bricked up. This was no doubt due to the window tax imposed in the 18th and 19th centuries. To the left can be seen a woman sitting at the window, but she is headless. Could this be the supposed ghost that is said to roam the bars of the pub?
