The People

  • In 1861 the publican was a Mr. Thomas.[2]
  • In 1861 John Higgens applied for the license.[2]. At the hearing their was discussion on the current state of the hotel:
John Higgens, Armstrong street, Soldiers' Hill Hotel. Mr Lewis: I appear to support the application. Mr Inspector Kabat: Mr Lewis rises to support this application before he knows whether I have any objection! I have, however, to complain that the house is in a filthy condition. The rooms are filthy; the stable is filthy; and the watercloset is filthy, altogether the house is unfit for accommodation. Mr Lewis: We admit that the watercloset is not in good order, but a nightman has been engaged to attend to it this evening. The present is a fresh applicant for the license. We are not accountable for the condition of the house, as it has been in other hands. When we get possession it will " naturally" be put in proper order. The house had formerly been let to a person named Thomas. Mr Lewis: The present applicant is a respectable man. Mr Kabat: I hope he'll keep the house cleaner than it has been kept then.[2]
