Above photo circa 1900 of a Dartford Brewery Company house.

 

The caption underneath reads:-

"...Treating the Moke at a wayside public house, en route to the hop gardens.

The four-legged member of the family is not forgotten, when the costermonger, his wife and child partake of light refreshment at the roadside inn and it is obviously enjoying to the full its share of the refreshing liquor. In the hop picking season there is a great immigration in Kent, special travelling facilities being afforded by the railway companies but many families prefer the road, where, tightly packed in miniature conveyances, they may jog along at leisure..."

 

It is suggest again by Michael Mirams that this could be the "Royal Albert" in St. Mary Cray, but he's not certain.
