Sportsman’s Arms, Barham

What a wonderful photograph and look at that automobile. The Sportsman’s Arms was in Derringstone from at least 1850. Perhaps they were off to see a game in another town?

Mr. Barry, the landlord pictured above seems to have been around in the late 1920’s, so I am guessing the photos are from around that time.

On 29 Jan 1926 the Kingston Football and Cricket Club held a dinner at The Sportsman’s Arms, about 30 members and friends were present and enjoyed a most excellent dinner, thanks being due to Mr. and Mrs. Barry, who most ably carried out the catering.
