Whilst searching the archives I also came across a Samuel Baws (Israel's brother I think) who is listed as the License holder for the Prince of Wales, 16 Northdown Street from Sept 1915-Jul 1924. These premises were in Pentonville ward and were supplied by City of London Brewery, Upper Thames Street. ***
