COMMERCIAL INN, North Road

COMMERCIAL HOTEL
162 (later 332) North Road
*
FORMERLY THE "DOLPHIN INN"
*
 *
*
*
In legal documents, the street bounding the inn to the north of it, was shown as Mill Street North, but when planning permission was sought in 1949 to include the neighbouring shop
as the new lounge (see above), the street was shown as Acton Street. I don't know when the change was made, or why.
