Many accurate 1921 census transcriptions have already been added to the pub history site, including London, and parts of Middlesex. If you can contribute to the site, send me some details to Kevan, along with some description of the specific property.

Manchester Courier 22 February 1905 - Lord Mayor and City Rates
The first objection was to the licence of the Royal George, 36 Back Turner street, of which the tenant is Orbell Edward Crossman. Mr Cobberr appeared for the tenant, and Mr Hart for the owner.
It was stated that there were forty three licensed houses within a distance of three hundred yards of this house, thirty being fully licensed, nine beer on, and four beer off licences.
The license was examined by Mr Cobbett. He said he paid £35 for the goodwill, fixtures &c on entering the house. He paid £30 a year rent; the brewer paid £70 a year rent to the owner.
The Lord Mayor said that was how the rates of the city came to be so high. The brewer paid £70 rent to the owner, and let the tenant off with £30, "making up the difference in other ways, by charging more for beer and everything else; and £40 a year in rates is lost to the city."
The licence was renewed.
