A customer has enquired about a photo he has of The Crown and Anchor taken some time - I would say - between 1860 and 1910.
It has a sign on the wall saying ...
N. Reid and Co.'s Fine Windsor Ales Stout and Porter.
The question relates though to the name on the pub sign, under the name The Crown and Anchor - after what looks like the initial W, is the name Butler. The customer is hoping this name will help date the photo, but for his own reasons is not happy for the photo itself to be placed on here.
I have used Ancestry, and the library, etc. to check censuses, directories etc. for the name, but to no avail.
If anyone happens to know the answer I'd be grateful. I have already recommended Berkshire Record Office's electoral registers as his next recourse.

Thanks for your responses thus far.
As for Thamesweb's useful guide website, I too have found this useful. However, the photo (which I have seen) is entirely peopled by men in quite tall bowler hats, but that website doesn't cover men's costumes very well. I seem to remember that tall bowlers were a 1890s phase ...
Dead pubs is great, and incidentally needs updating for many of the pubs beyond the end of the period when the county-based directories stopped being published (1939), using the town ones. So, if anyone has a spare few hours. I might have a go in a lunch-hour sometime, but could do with a little help :-)
Otherwise, for this one, back to the electoral registers I think!
