    Well. The moment has come. I am starting a theme thread that I had wanted to start for only just about 4 years but never have.

    Let me begin with horrible scans from prints of photos I took during our holidays on the Inishowen Peninsular (northernmost tip of Ireland) since that is where I started looking at - and photographing - pub fronts first. They just ASKED to be photographed.

    Forgive me the quality of these scans (I can't make myself re-scan them with my newer scanner, which, by the way, is also already showing signs of old age again...)

    Oooo, great idea for a theme, Corinna! LOVE the bright colours in your shots (especially the 'unknown pub' and Roddens). I'm sure I have a pic or two of a pub. (*commences digging through the archives*)

    Very nice, brings back memories of the UK and Scotland in particular.

    Starting a "pub" thread is a great idea, however the bars here (US) do not have unique names and few are painted as brightly as in the UK.

    OK, not only "exotic" ones from Ireland now, but some German pub fronts (seen and photographed in Oldenburg several years ago, all photos presented once more scans from prints):

    1.

    Ernst Hoyer's wine pub

    2.

    Schmizz-Café in the centre of Oldenburg

    3[​IMG]
    "Kleine Burg"

    And now two "fronts" (of which one is more from the side because only there could I find room onto which to lean the Powershot since I was without tripod) taken in Berlin

    4.

    Inside "Hackesche Höfe"

    5.

    "Birchi" (if I read right) on Oranienburger St.

    And one in Potsdam
