Springhill Tavern, Burley
Undated. View of Springhill Tavern, at the junction of Spring Street West and North Hall Terrace. The side seen here is the one that faced onto North Hall Street, which ran parallel to Spring Street West. Demolition of the area began in the 1950s, and by the mid 1960s, the tavern and surrounding streets had gone, being replaced with industrial buildings. The area is now occupied by TV studios.

I can well imagine my gt grandfather George Bean, being a frequent customer here.In 1891 he lived in North Hall Row, off North Hall Street, which was to the right in this photo.The house was within shouting distance of the pub.He later lived in King's Road, running a grocers business before emigrating with a number of his children to Toronto Canada around 1911. His eldest son Joseph, my grandfather had married in 1900 and remained in England with his family. George, Partner Jane and 6 of the children emigrated, 2 returned some years later.
