I am looking for my 2xGt Grandfather who was Israel Baws, as the Licensed Victualler at 313 Old Street, Shoreditch as that was listed on his death certificate in 1917. It would appear that at the time this was the Prince of Wales. The directories I have searched give the name of Prince of Wales and then name Coleman Cohen. ***

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. ***
