UK- type listing of the English Pub:

The Guardian Newspaper online has a story about an initiative to nominate the typical English pub for UNESCO World Heritage status – by grouping numerous typical examples together under the banner of a “type” nomination. Other type listings including modernist examples have also succeeded, and this could be an interesting precedent for Australian modernism…. The Aussie Bowling Club perhaps??!!
