This picture of the Grapes Hotel in Gee Cross is c.1910.
It looks very different in 2007.
Neither picture helps me answer the query I recently received from Eric Downs who writes
An argument has ensued about the gents at the front of the Grapes Hotel. There is a photo in the pub taken when it was owned by Bells I think at the turn of the 20th century before it received a face lift by Robinsons. In the photo the gents is attached to the pub but my memory going back to 1930s puts the gents as a separate structure closer to the pavement at start of Wych Fold and adjacent to Booths well. Can you confirm this? Do you have a photo of the front of the Grapes around that time. The gents was certainly there 1949-50I haven't the faintest idea but maybe someone else knows.
