Mr Harry Weeks, tenant at the Magdala, Lordship Lane, East Dulwich for a number of years has decided to retire from business. He has a long and honourable record in Truman's trade.
Beginning in 1890, he acted as potman and barman at the Dun Cow, in Old Kent Road, until 1895. This was then a free house selling Truman's beers and was later purchased by the company. Following another period as a barman at the Princess of Wales, London Road, Southwark, Mr Weeks became manager and licensee of the Brunswick Tavern in the Old Kent Road. He resided there from 1900 until 1907.
After a break of three years, Mr Weeks became the tenant of the Claremont in Bermondsey, until 1922, when he was accepted as the tenant of the Magdala.
Mr Weeks name was mentioned on the annual renewal day at the Newington Bench as one of four who had either completed or were just completing 50 years as a licensee under the Bench of Magistrates. (1949) ***
