I received the transfer details which show a Richard Gooding took over the Parrs Head at 73 Plender street, Camden Town in May 1971 and was earlier at the Roebuck, Pond Street NW3 and the Rose and Crown, Market street, Watford Hertfordshire. This was when my Father left the Parrs Head in 1971.  ***
