Have Your Say
If you would like to share any further information on Cardigan Street - perhaps you drank in one of the pubs in the past? Or maybe knew a previous publican running one of the boozers? Whatever the reason it would be great to hear of your stories or gossip. Simply send a message and I'll post it here.
"People go to church for the same reasons they go to a tavern: to stupefy themselves, to forget their misery, to imagine themselves, for a few minutes anyway, free and happy.."
"William Walton, hawker, 78 Cardigan Street, was charged with assaulting Warrant Officer William Roach [119R], and Lizzie Ashton, Back 16,
Cardigan Street, was charged with obstructing the officer in the execution of his duty. Mr. J. E. Hill appeared for the prosecution. The evidence showed that on Wednesday
last, the officer went to 78, Cardigan Street, to execute an ejection order. Walton whom he found upstairs, threatened to shoot him, and when the officer went downstairs to
obtain assistance, Walton followed him into the street and struck him a violent blow to the side of the head. The woman, it was said, obstructed the officer. Walton was sent
to gaol for a month with hard labour, and the woman, who denied the charge against her, was discharged with a caution."
