Yates's in Blackpool

Don McPhee


Yates’s is Britain’s oldest pub chain, founded as Yates’s Wine Lodge in 1884 in Oldham, Lancashire. Historically, it was a popular destination for elderly and working-class people and it had a particularly strong presence in the north of England, where the Guardian photographer Don McPhee worked. Yates’s was known for its Australian wine and draught beer. From the wine kegs and the cigarette butts scattered on the floor, to the headscarves, flat caps and wide lapels, the photograph is a snapshot of a time that is long gone. Words: Jen Bowey
