Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, The Cambridge Arms Pub, c1915

Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, The Cambridge Arms Pub, circa 1915. This pub survived until 2002 and was then demolished. It was originally called the Hope and Anchor but changed its name to the Cambridge Arms in 1855. This information was gleaned from 'Pubs, Inns and Taverns of Kingston' by Richard F. Holmes which also shows a later photograph of the pub. The pub has been replaced by a block of flats called Pyramid Court. Postcard by an uncredited publisher and my copy is clearly damaged at the top left. Click the postcard to enlarge.

  1. What a shame to be replaced by such an ugly building!

  2. It is a shame. I wonder why they called the flats Pyramid Court? They could at least have referenced the pub in the name, one would think.

  3. The pub was the home of surrey darts for years and was sad to see it go ..and they call this progress .
