IN AN ARTICLE ABOUT CORPORATION LICENCES:
.............whether the Eldon Hotel was built at the Corporation's 
expense I don't know, but in the article it says:-
"Some years ago they (the Corporation) were offered £500 for
one of their licences for what is now the Eldon Hotel. The
Council, however, rejected the offer, and two years later the
 applicant got the licence for nothing."
Preston Chronicle 29th July 1893
