Advent 6: the Hat and Beaver

This is a photo of the front bar of the Hat and Beaver pub which used to stand on Highcross Street and was, until its closure last year, one of the last remaining 'unspoilt' city centre pubs. 'Semper Eadem', a joint project between photographer Maxine Beuret and the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EMOHA), has documented Leicester buildings whose interiors have remained unchanged for at least 25 years, and although the project was run during 2007/8 several of the buildings we chose have closed since then. Have a look at some of the other interiors recorded at .
