Pubs are given some weird and wonderful names nowadays but there is one which has just opened in Norwich which is spot on - it really is the Last Pub Standing in a street which once boasted around 60 public houses and a number of breweries. This is King Street, one of the longest and oldest thoroughfares in the city, which more than 1,500 years ago as a footpath between a cliff and a river, leading to the Anglo-Saxon settlements which are thought to have been the beginning of Norwich.
It was a taste and a flavour of the exotic which changed the eating habits of the people of the city and county... well, those with a few bob in their pockets. This was the Cafe Royal in London Street, Norwich, which was opened by Cristofero Fasola in 1887, who arrived from running restaurants in Bournemouth and Brighton, introducing menus set out in French with waiters from Italy... and he welcomed his customers with a smile and a bow.
Today we start a new series looking at the changing face of Norwich over the last century – many of the new developments came about because the Luftwaffe set out to destroy large parts of the city during the Blitz while others were made in the name of progress. Good or bad? That’s for you to judge. The early photographs were used in a book published following the end of the Second World by A P Cooper and some of the pictures were taken by the well known Norwich photographers, Neals.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
