Board, 52 Cross Cheaping

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
Cross Cheaping 1892. The Criterion can be seen on the right.
Board means 'to board intoxicating liquor'. In some cases the need for a premises to have 'a board', that is a sign board, suggested this name as some places did in fact display a blank board. However, in this case, the Board identified a person sellling beer from their home; in other words a beerhouse under the 1839 Beerhouse Act, the real origin of the 'public house'. It is interesting that a number of Boards in Cross Cheaping operated as wine & spirits merchants.
