|NAME||BUNCH OF FLOWERS|
|ADDRESS||68 EAST STREET|
|The sign is a pretty straightforward image. I wonder if there is any significance in the pub's proximity to Primrose Hill Street?
The earliest licensee, George Clay, was also a baker and grocer. Also the pub is recorded as having a beerhouse license in 1896 and 1903 so I would surmise that it was originally a bakers and grocers shop with a bar. It closed c.1908.
The Bunch of Flowers doesn't appear on any of the maps from 1888 to 1906, and there are no beerhouses recorded on those maps either.
