1933 Bar Man Behind Cheque Clear Customers Draughts Drinks Landlord Makes Pubs Staff


EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print captures a charming scene from a London pub in 1933, where the landlord and bar staff are dealing with the issue of customers trying to pay for their drinks by cheque. The sign displayed prominently behind the bar reads: "Draughts, not overdrafts, available." This humorous yet clear message serves as a reminder to patrons that only cash will be accepted for their beverages. The historical significance of this image lies in its depiction of a common problem faced by pubs during that era. In an age before credit cards and digital payments, it was not uncommon for customers to attempt payment using cheques, causing inconvenience for both staff and other patrons waiting to be served. The photograph captures the essence of English pub culture in the 1930s, with its cozy atmosphere and bustling activity. The landlord and bar man can be seen working diligently behind the bar, ensuring that everyone enjoys their drinks without any financial hiccups. Overall, this print is a delightful glimpse into a bygone era of drinking establishments in England. It serves as a reminder of how things have changed over time while highlighting the timeless appeal of traditional pubs as social hubs for communities to gather and unwind over food and drink.
