Latest 1765+

Market Place

Dover

 

I know this pub cannot be the other "White Lion" in the Tower Hamlets district as there were no houses in that area when the following advert was placed.

At present I have no idea where this pub was, but I'm pretty sure it was in the heart of Dover.

Further research tells me I was correct, it was somewhere in Market Place.

 

From the Kentish Post or Canterbury News-Letter, May 16-20, 1730. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.
