Description:This postcard view was published in 1913 with the picture taken at a wonky angle. The description on the front of the postcard is: ‘Crown Club 1913 Dinnertime’.

This scene was captured on Crown Bank, Market Place, Abbots Bromley. On the left is the village Post Office with signs advertising Lipton’s Tea and another poster titled 'In respect of HM King George V and His Majesty’s Army'. In the centre is the Crown Hotel which in later years became known as the Crown Inn. Both of these buildings remain (September 2020), although the round windows between the gables on the second floor have been removed. In the foreground is the large banner belonging to Bagot Lodge no. 770 of the M. U. (Manchester Unity) of Oddfellows, Abbots Bromley.
