ABC Wednesday: Q is for the
Queens Arms at Kirkham
For the third week in a row my contribution to ABC Wednesday is a pub and like last week we are in Kirkham.
Although I'm a teetotaller, it appears that I take more photos of Public Houses than anything else (but it is still only just under 4% of the subjects I photograph).
My excuse is that so many pubs are disappearing that I want to record as many as possible while they still remain. This one looks to be still open although seeking a new landlord.
It is on what was the main road from Preston to Blackpool and Fleetwood. Where the car is parked looks like the entrance to stables and so this was probably a coaching inn originally.
I've aged and tinkered slightly with the perspective to produce this image.
You can see the original photograph of Poulson Street with the Queens Arms lying next to Xtreme Dry Cleaning on Geograph.
