Photo of the Orange Tree pub, Pill, Newport, taken around 1998. This was once a real ale haven and appeared in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide in the late 1980s. Compare it with a photo taken from Google Street View below:
I do find Streetview useful when looking for pubs to visit, or even researching old pubs.
The pub was demolished shortly after the original photograph was taken.
