Board, 59 Cross Cheaping

Cross Cheaping 1892.
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'. All I know of this is that it was closed in 1929 for street improvement, according to the Police Reports.
