LEGS OF MAN, Gin Bow Entry

LEGS OF MAN
Gin Bow Entry

Thought to be synonymous with "The Board" and the "Ram's Head"

MINE HOSTS:
1812                 William Worden
1818                 Mary Worden
1821                 Peter Worden

1825 - 29         Peter Worden (as 'The Board')

*
The 1818 Dirrectory gave no name for Mary Worden's premises - it
was shown as a dash.

The 1821 record gave the name LEGS OF MAN.

The name for the later records gave the name 'The Board'.

There's nothing certain but I think the two are synonymous with one another.

TO BREWERS
TO BE SOLD BY PRIVATE TREATY
