The side road sign on the Pub says 'Burnaby Street', which was between Church St and Union St. Looking at an old map, I would say that the frontage of the Pub was directly opposite No. 20 King St, which is adjacent to the licenced convinience store (formerly Threshers etc.)
The lamp post / tram pole on the left still has remains of the white bands painted on it during the war, and is probably in exactly the same position as the one directly outside the Egremont Pharmacy. Meanwhile, the lamp post on the right would have been at the corner of Union St.

This was previously known as 'The Hen and Chickens'.

In 1857 the publican was Noah Beamish, according to the street directory.

The 1861 Census gives us some more details.
Noah Beamish was born in 1819 in Wellington, Shropshire. His wife, Mary, was born in 1810. Living with them was Lucy Hall, stepdaughter and barmaid. Noah gave his occupation as 'Publican and Chief Engineer on the Great Britain Steamship'. Not many can make that claim!

In 1883 Noah was still the publican, but the Pub was now called 'The Great Britain'.

By 1902 it has an address - 15 King Street, and the publican is now Joseph Herman Gramer.

By 1910 it had changed hands again and the publican was listed as 'H Robertson'.
