Freemasons Arms, 237 Harnall Lane East

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
FREEMANS ARMS
The original freemasons were stone masons in mediaeval Europe who operated a closed shop system. They used secret signs to exclude what would now be called cowboy builders. In modern times the freemasons are members of a fraternal society that does a certain amount of charitable work. This was part of the FREEMASONS TAVERN premises. Rather oddly between 1919 and 1940 the premises had two licenses, although the licensee was usually the same person. Presumably the pub was split into two seperate premises? Can anyone explain this strange set of circumstances? In 1929 the Directory mistakenly gives the name as FREEMANS ARMS.
