Old Cross Saws Inn & 111 Main Street

The Old Cross Saws Inn is so called because there once stood a preaching cross nearby.  Adjacent is a row of three fine Georgian houses: no. 111 is described as ‘the crowning  glory of Pembroke’s domestic architecture’ Buildings of Wales: Pembrokeshire.

Set into its front wall is an old vending machine for stamps and stamped postcards. These official stationery cards, pre-printed with a stamp, were introduced in 1872.  The popular picture postcards only became legal in 1894.
