Kenna, Rudolph; Mooney, Anthony People's Palaces, Victorian and Edwardian Pubs of Scotland , Edinburgh: Paul Harris, 1983

First paperback edition. Paperback 24x19 cm, 110 bw ills, glossary, index Pagination: 167. This is a celebration of the golden age of the Scottish pub (1880-1910) when licensed premises were made to conform to late Victorian standards of beauty and utility with elaborate wrought-iron signs, stained glass windows and resplendent gas lamps. Some architects made a speciality of pub design and the best craftsmen were used to carry out their strikingly effective schemes. This book not only considers the design of the public house, with examples drawn from all over Scotland, but also the wider social background highlighting attitudes and opinions on strong drink many of which persist to this day, unlike many of our finest pubs which have been torn down..
