Sorry, a bit slow getting back delbert. Blown them up the best I can.

On this one it looks like the lefthand building reads Bank Buildings, the middle-left reads Great Northern Railway (ticket office according to directory), and the righthand has just Bank.

Can't make out all of this one but what I think I can see is-
G. W. or C.W.SCOTT,
(somthing) & Fruit (something)
(something) Hill Fruit Farm

The Angel

Postby teddybear1959 » 01 Jun 2006, 22:12

I did a project (they call them assignments now) when I was at the tec in 1975-7, asbout the pubs of King's Lynn and found a little rhyme about the Angel.

According to something I read, when John King died, the pub was demolished (circa 1830) and a local poet wrote;

The King and Queen
They once lived here,
The Angel kept the door;
The King is dead,
The Queen is fled
And the Angel is no more.

I don't know if it is true but it is a lovely little rhyme and story. Something to check up upon. There is no Angel in the 1836 directory for Lynn.

Other pubs on the Tuesday Market Place included;
The Globe
The Duke's Head
The Victory (No longer a pub)
The Woolpack
The Maid's Head

Such a big Market Place and so few pubs!

Teddy :wink:

I can see how the poem could have come about Teddy, especially if the landlord and lady were popular. 8)

As for the lack of pubs on the market place, I think the rest of the town made up for it. :smt111 (as you probably already know) 8)

Market Place

Postby TK843 » 30 Nov 2006, 20:02

When I was in one of the Museums during my visit earlier this year I saw a photo of a dinner which was taking place with people from every ward in the city, together with instyructions at to what they should wear and what cutlery and mugs they should bring.

Napoleon defeat - peace celebration

Postby old-git » 01 Dec 2006, 16:32

Thanks for the info TK, was it the pic below? I shall have to get to the museum and check it out.

This is the only pic I have seen of a sit down do on the market place, the text below comes from Hillen's, p527, about the celebrations after the defeat of Napoleon. I think the two may be related.
