I'm interested in The Feathers, Deptford.  I have a photo which appears to have been taken about 1880 during an election. It has HAWKINS above the door and The Feathers at the top of the building. This is a strange photo on Glass which was broken. I have a birth certificate that says the father - my great grandfather - Charles Alfred Hawkins was the Licensed Victualler at The Feathers in 1879. He was previously the Pot Boy at the Lancaster Arms in 1871. **
