‘The Moon Under Water’
George Orwell wrote an essay for the Evening Standard in 1946 titled “The Moon Under Water”, in which he described a fictional pub that existed in his imagination. What he saw to be the perfect image of what a pub should be. This piece takes on a whole new meaning when viewed through the lens of lockdown-Britain and what remains of its ‘pub culture’.
This publication is a look at Britain’s, at times unusual, relationship with Pubs and what that looks like in the current climate.
