Then and Now: White Horse (Bar Lorca), Brixton Road
Photographic comparisons of old and modern views of Lambeth
c 1921 The imposing Ye Olde White Horse has been a fixture on Brixton Road for centuries (it appears on a route map of 1790), serving as a coaching inn, with a cab rank dating back to horse drawn days. The pub stands on the corner of Loughborough Road and Brixton Road, and in this view proudly boasts a 'Grand Billiard Saloon'
