Royal Vaults Broadgate c1900 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'. In the 1860s these premises were Alexander Importers, and from 1874 it was the SPIRIT VAULTS, also known as the BOARD VAULTS. Broadgate North C1910
