|Notes / History||Mitcham's Mayor, Alderman David Chalkley, unfurls a flag from the sign of the new Pollard Oak pub. The pub had been serving Pollards Hill from 1948, but the original building was only a pre-fab.
This 1959 ceremony marked the opening of a new, larger pub which contained three separate bars. It was run by Mrs. Lilian Esgen.
