In 1928, my father (George Hawkins) was landlord at the Nags Head, Tottenham High road near to the Edmonton boundary, we used to have a horse to cut the grass. He then moved to the Crown, in Cleveland street W1, until the GPO purchased all the land from Maple street area including the chemist on the corner, the film studios and beyond. I remember celebrating a Royal 'to do' around around 1935. *

He then moved to the Sutton arms in Clerkenwell, where we used to have professional snooker players practice on our full size table on the first floor. From there it was to the final resting place, the Paget Arms in hackney where he was when war broke out. *
