We really want Our Town Story to be an album for your old photos, to fill in the gaps in the history books of our villages, towns and cities. We would also love for those pictures to be able to help others - for instance by using reminiscence therapy in treating dementia

We're still a work in progress, and we appreciate all suggestions and observations!

Image Details

This info from Wikipedia:

Jack Straw's Castle is a Grade II listed building and former public house in Hampstead, NorthWest London, England. The current building was designed by the architect Raymond Erith and dates to 1965; it replaced an earlier public house of the same name which was destroyed in The Blitz during the Second World War. The building, like the former one, takes its name from the rebel leader Jack Straw, who led the Peasants' Revolt in 1381 and who is said to have lived on the site.
