Wood Street Hotel
One of two public houses along Wood Street. It survived the Woodman Inn (closed in 1929), functioning until 1966, about the time that this image was probably taken. A full list of former publicans, from 1868 to 1966 can be seen by reference to Vol 2 of E.G. Tasker's 'Barnsley Streets' (p.103). The hotel was well-built in brick with a smart stone facade incorporating tall sash windows, each set in ashlar. Tall entrance door. Residential and guest accomodation probably in at least 6 rooms. A former Barnsley Brewery house: see the hanging sign and 'Oakwell Ales' advert on the centrally-placed boards.
