I thought I would follow the enumerator of the 1911 census around Reading. I am clearly looking for public houses, hotels and beer houses which are mentioned.

It is Aprl 1911. Who knows how the world will change in the next few years, but Reading is awash with too many drinking establishments. Some are hotels, others are public houses and beer houses, and the occasional off licence in the newer districts.

I followed the enumarator as he recorded this scene, and the named person at the residence :
