Find a hotel

This interactive map lets you locate hotels owned or supplied by Tooth and Company between the 1920s and the 1970s.

From the map you can see photographs and other information about hotels on 'yellow cards'. These are index cards the company kept about its own hotels and those of its competitors. Each card covers roughly a decade. While the cards vary slightly, they all provide the same basic information. The front of the card normally has the hotel name, location, owner, licensee, a graph featuring the number of barrels or dozens of bottles of Tooth’s beer supplied to the hotel, and information on the total trade with Tooth. The back of the card usually provides a photograph of the hotel and information about the building, land, amenities, nearby hotels and local industries. If this information was not provided the card was not digitised.
