Running Footman, 5 Charles Street, Berkeley Square - circa 1930

Kindly provided by Ham Baxter

Charles Street, off Berkeley Square, retains a "pub" named after that special kind of servant whose duty it was to run before the crawling family coach, help it out of ruts, warn toll keepers, and clear the way generally. He wore a livery and usually carried a cane. The last person to employ a Running Footman is said to have been "Old Q," the Duke of Queensberry who died in 1810. The faded sign is fixed to the bay in the side street and appears here, over the taxi. The tavern is a bit of London from the days of "the Quality" whose servants it served. * The pub is now known as The Only Running Footman, after a period of being called I Am the Only Running Footman. *+
