Spread Eagle, advertising card for Powell Jones

Taken: 1912-1932, Ref: M2745

Drawing of the Spread Eagle, with a printed caption on the front reading ‘Spread Eagle Hotel Witham. A A Powell-Jones, proprietor. Built in the 13th century. Phone 46’. Arthur Alfred Powell-Jones is in directories at the Spread Eagle from 1914 to 1929. It is generally agreed now that the Spread Eagle itself was built more recently than the 13th century, although Newland Street was beginning to be set out in the 13th..
