The Royal Mint Inn stood on the west side of Icknield Street but was removed for the 'improvement' of the road - the motor car has a lot to answer for! In this shot a Ford Cortina is about to overtake the No.8 bus. As the pub's name suggests, the building stood across from The Mint. The pub was on the corner of Hingeston Street which can be seen to the left in this photograph. The name of Walter Forbes Hepburn can be seen above the door - he was the licensee between November 1964 and July 1967. The pub has the livery of Atkinson's Brewery. The Royal Mint had earlier been operated by the Langley-based Showell's Brewery. Bass were the owners when the building closed on September 29th 1970.
This is how the image would look in a picture frame. The image would look good in a frame with a mount aperture up to 16 x 12. I can supply images in a frame. Photo processing, framing and postage would mean a turnaround of 2-3 weeks. Pricing variable depending on size and shipping destination.
You can download a large version of this image [up to 3000 x 1879 pixels] providing you with an image capable of being placed in a large picture frame. Below there are four segments of the image showing the detail within the image.
Paypal is the preferred payment for this site - it is one of the safest online payment methods and allows you to pay with a number of cards. You DO NOT need a Paypal account to pay but perhaps you should consider setting one up - it's free and easy to do so. Why have your credit card details with lots of retailers when you could just have one account that is accepted by many websites. I DO NOT see your credit/debit card details and this site is secure - note the PADLOCK in the address bar showing that all information is encrypted.
Each image is priced on the website and each image has an "add to basket" button. When you press one of these buttons you will be directed to your shopping basket. You can remove items by updating the basket. If you wish to continue viewing images and/or buy further photos you can use the "continue shopping" button to return to the page you were browsing. Please ensure you are selecting the option in the drop-down menu for the image you require. You can always delete items from your basket before you checkout. Once you are finished browsing and shopping simply review your purchases and, if you're ready, checkout.
When you are ready to pay press the "proceed to checkout" button. Paypal account holders simply log in and pay with a click. Paypal generates an invoice for you and a copy is sent to the website when your images will be sent via e-mail with attachments. I like to do it this way as I feel I can provide that little extra customer service with a friendly message and some advice on how to safely store your images on your computer's hard drive or other media.
Your image will be sent to the e-mail address used to pay via Paypal. If you prefer to receive your image via another e-mail address please leave an instruction in the "message to merchant" box on your invoice.
All orders are processed as quickly as possible but the office is not a 24/7 operation. I may be on the road taking photographs, on a cycle ride or even down the pub! I do however like to keep everyone happy and, as such, I generally process orders on the same day. You are a valued customer and are treated as such.
