Beers and Ales

Now known as the Boosbeck Hotel, this image of the Commercial Hotel Boosbeck; when beer and ales were 7 pence a pint. For the younger viewers that’s about 3p in today’s money, think I’ll go for a pint or two.

    I believe that the people in the door way were my great grandparents,they ran the commercial.
    The man in the picture was George Teale, I am David Teale.
    They had a very large family, even for those times.
