Description:This collage of photographs was used by the Arts Council of Great Britain in a "Modern British Photography 1919-39" Exhibition, held in London in 1980. It shows a bottle of Worthington's Pale Ale surrounded by other pictures which could be termed as weekend activities, like walking in the country, motoring, train travel (a railway porter with case) boating and playing golf.
The map location is the former Worthingtons' offices, at 146 High Street, now a Grade II Listed building.
