This photograph was meant to show the former St. James's Tavern pub at 31, St. James's Parade but unfortunately the photographer chose the wrong building and instead took a photo of the Wessex Wholesale Electric store. The St. James's Tavern was further along the road. It opened in about 1868, closed in 1879 and became a coffee house. From a photographic survey from 1965-1966 of over 300 existing or lost pubs and breweries in Bath and the surrounding area. Photographed in June 1966.
