APPLICATIONS FOR LICENSEES.

Mr. Dell, of the "Old George," Globe Lane, Chatham, who was not in attendance when the general licenses were granted, was reprimanded by the Bench; he had recently been informed against for having his house open at unlawful hours on a Sunday; if it occurred again, the next application for a license might be refused.

 

The "Old George" was demolished some time in the second half of the 1970's as part of a road widening scheme. It was noted for its ornate mirrors and pianola at the bar.
