I am looking for details regarding my great grandfather William Henry Brown, he managed that pub in 1911, according to the 1911 census,
Any one with further details or a odd pic, I would really appreciate it. Mark
William first appears at that address as landlord in the 1904 Kellys. It is a different landlord in the 1903 edition. He is still there in the 1915 edition, but has left by the 1921 edition. AS these dates are publication dates and therefore refer to year before, it can be said that William was landlord there from 1903 till at least 1914, but had gone by 1921. there are no surviving building around there, but possibly a member has a photo. Below is a map showing the position of the pub in red
It is labelled 22 Norton st in the Kellys I looked at,. Double frontages (ie say 22-23) could be labelled as either or as both, but both Kellys and this c1950 map show that no 23 was on the opposite side of the junction
Interesting. I have not looked into this tavern. In Post #4 it is said to be a Holt pub but the photograph shows Atkinson's etched glass. Also it does not appear to be a corner pub [as indicated by Mike] with its central entrance. I cannot read the licensee plate but I would doubt if this is the Bird in Hand to which this thread refers?
