The image is a view of the Old Strand Hotel in Strand Street. The pub was sold at auction in the mid 1960s to a small consortium of local publicans who named it The Jamaica Inn and greatly utilised the large concert room in the rear which had been a flat roofed extension to the Victorian property in the front. Later it was sold again and became the Leisure Inn and was then replaced by an amusement arcade.
