World Turned Upside Down, 145 Old Kent Road, Bermondsey, London SE1

This 1930s pub was designed for Watney, Combe, Reid & Co. Ltd by A W Blomfield. In 2008, original fascia incised lettering on the ground floor frontage: 'WATNEY'S ALES ... THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN ... REID'S STOUT'. By 2012, the building had been extended upwards as a block of flats, and although the original pub ground floor stone fascia was retained, the right-hand Reid's sign was obscured by a modern Domino's Pizza sign. The Watney sign on the left is still visible.
