SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY
BEERHOUSE - Lawson Street, called Bakers' 
Arms, occupied by Miss Harrison. 
Dwellinghouse, No. 31 Lawson Street.
Preston Chronicle 26th October 1872
*
Henry Monk, landlord of the Butchers' Arms, Lawson Street,
was charged with selling beer during prohibited hours on the 13th
June. The case was remanded for a week for the appearance of a
witness.
Preston Chronicle 4th July 1874
This could be an example of a common practice, where a defendant,
by a 'slip of the tongue' gives the wrong name of his establishment 
to avoid bad publicity. It happened too often for it to be coincidence.

THE FOLLOWING WAS TAKEN FROM A REPORT ON
THE CASE OF A MURDER THAT WAS COMMITTED OUTSIDE
THE BAKERS' ARMS IN 1883:
"The scene of the crime was the Bakers' Arms, a small
beershop in Lawson Street. In this locality many of the
Irish in town have taken up their residence, and the
beershop named appears to be a resort of the Irish
inhabitants. In the tragedy enacted on Monday afternoon 
both the victim and the assailant are natives of the Emerald Isle"
Preston Chronicle 8th September 1883
A FULL ACCOUNT OF THE MURDER
IS BELOW THE CENSUS REPORTS, BELOW.

And the following newspaper clipping was from a 20th century newspaper,
given to me by the late Brian Reeder:
