20th Century London caption: This wintry scene shows the Georgian-built Yorkshire Stingo public house at the crossroads of Chapel Street and Marylebone Road. Stingo is a type of strong ale usually associated with Yorkshire. The pub, still trading in the 1960s, has since been drastically modernised. A horse-drawn cart has stopped outside to deliver Guinness, Bass and cider. The Yorkshire Stingo was the starting point of the Shillibeer, the first regular scheduled omnibus in London, on its original route to the Bank of England in 1829. At the end of the road is the entrance to an Underground and Metropolitan Railway station.
