Sent: 25 October 2012 14:36 Dear list, This is a bit of a whimsy, but I hope the list could help me out. There is a pub called The Camden Head, in Camden Walk, Angel, Islington, London, that has a board outside stating: "In Georgian times the upstairs of the Camden Head was the location of a "birth control shop for women" that had its own entrance." It's unclear whether it was also a pub at the time - the same board states it "can be dated back to 1806 when a Samuel Grammer was the Licensee." Has anyone come across this place before? Can anyone recommend work on birth control in Georgian times that discusses shops and distribution? Would such places advertise anywhere?
