There is a pub missing here! There was a rather fine 1937 building which interspersed these two. It was finished in the pleasing Kemp Town Brewery (I think!) 'interwar style' and had the date carved onto the exterior.

Interesting to note that on the wall above the gentleman walking past the main entrance, is shown one of the two wall plaques depicting the Prince of Wales feathers that were salvaged from the original building. They were both replaced at the porchway to the new office block.

I remember this pub. Many a time when I was a kid I used to have to wait in the passage for my mum and dad. Also the Imperial which was a bit further down the Queens Road from the Feathers and, if I am right, the Imperial now houses the BBC shop I think!

Does anyone know how I can find out who the landlord of The Feathers was around the end of WWII? I'm interested in the period 1943 to 1946.

The hotel stood at 53, Queen's Road and in the 1947 Kelly's directory the proprietor was listed as James Owen Cave. As he was also listed there in 1939/40, it would be reasonable to assume he was there between those dates. Unfortunately, no directories were published between the two that are mentioned to confirm this, although you might wish to try alcohol licensing records. Regards, Andy.
