Games and Pastimes – Pub Darts – London – 1930.
These pictures, taken in a London public house, shows two men playing darts – the working-man’s game that became a national pastime.
The original caption trilled:
Games are usually played for a ‘pint’ (of beer) – paid for by the loser. The picture shows the players putting the flights in their brass darts before the game.
