The new coffee tavern at Bradford

Interior and exterior views of the new coffee tavern in Bradford, inaugurated by W. E Forster, M.P in 1879. The Coffee Tavern movement was a Victorian effort to get people out of pubs. Proposed by the Bradford councillor, alderman and magistrate, Frederick Priestman, the tavern was opened at the junction of Westgate, Ivegate and Kirkgate and was an immediate commercial success serving food as well as coffee. Within a few years there were 28 branches in the Bradford district but with over 400 licensed beer sellers in the area, how much of a sobering effect they had on the local population is debatable

The King and Queen at the Windsor festivities

George III (1738-1820)and Queen Charlotte observing the roasting of an ox at Windsor, part of celebrations to mark the king's Diamond Jubilee in 1810. Accompanied by the queen and several of their children, the royal family watched from an erected pavilion and were served slices of beef with plum pudding. The festivities at Windsor were among many held throughout the country to mark the fifty year reign of this popular monarch. Shortly afterwards, George's favourite daughter, Amelia fell ill and died. The shock brought on mental derangement (now thought to be caused by porphyria) and in 1811, the Prince of Wales was appointed Prince Regent
