Rare picture of the inside of the former Globe Inn features true Honitonians.

AN extremely rare photograph of old Honiton has been unearthed by The Midweek Herald.

The picture shows the inside of the former Globe Inn - a sight never before seen by Margaret Lewis, archivist at Allhallows Museum in the town.

Pictured during a ‘jollification’ at the venue, on the corner of High Street and Dowell Street, are the late Les Moore and Tom Channon.

The image also includes, we believe, one of the few photographs ever taken of Honiton war hero Phil Moore, who died during the Second World War and whose name is inscribed on the town’s war memorial.

The picture was taken in the run-up to the outbreak of war and features an array of true Honitonians, whose descendants still live in the town today.

See the full picture, along with other, never before seen photographs of old Honiton, in next week’s Midweek Herald.
