Vanished Leicester: Everards Brewery, Southgate Street

Copyright © Dennis Calow
The University of Leicester has now indexed Dennis Calow's photographs on a clickable map, which makes it easier to find your way around the collection.

This one, taken in 1949, shows Everard's brewery, which stood on the corner of Castle Street and Southgate Street.

It was built in the mid 19th century and originally owned by Wilmot & Co. It was to be lost to the city's enthusiasm for new roads in the 1960s.
