Fountain location

Above photo, date unknown, showing the location of the "Fountain."

 

Information from local historian Ed Gilbert says that this was never a public house but operated as a beer-retailer, but I'm not so sure about that as it was titled a tavern. I am also informed that the original pub was demolished in the 1930 and replaced by the current (2018) building of Burton's.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
