My grandfather the publican
The first photograph here shows my great-grandfather, William Stevens,who was publican of the Bute Arms in Bute Street.
We think it was taken around 1900 although it could be older. My grandmother was his daughter, Edith, and is one of the younger women in the picture.
The second photograph shows the location as it is today. Quite amazing really how little changed it is.
Do you know?
When did the building cease to be used as a public house? Do you remember it – or have any information you can share? Please leave a comment below.
