I am the granddaughter of Kate and William Bundle who owned the Carlton Tavern at 45 Culmore Road, Peckham SE15. The previous landlord, Abraham Corr� was Nana�s first husband. There is a family legend,  that Nana, Kate Bundle was the Licensee of the pub in her own right after the death of one or both husbands� and that she was in fact the first female licensee in England, is there any way to find out if this is true?  ***

 The publican�s daughters on the doorstep of the Carlton Tavern, I would estimate Sadie would have been about 25, with Alma to the right aged 15 and my Mum (Joan) to the left about 18 - circa 1943.

Nana gave birth to four children whilst owning the pub. The eldest child was from her marriage with �Bill� Corr�, and was born in 1918, her name was Sadie Corr� and she died on the 26th of August this year aged 91. She was a �little person� and had spent her life on the stage and in movies. If you have ever seen �The Rocky Horror Picture Show� then you have seen her, she was the smallest Transylvanian. She was an Ewok in �Star Wars�, the slave master in �Dark Crystal� and there was a long, long list of other movies. She was also a famous pantomime cat and she was with Sir Norman Wisdom at the London Palladium in �Turn again Whittington� in the 60�s. - much of this information comes from the Guardian ; and written by Glen Barham. ***

Sadie (the littlest one) -  with Edward, Joan & Alma on the flat roof (which still exists) at the back of the Carlton Tavern.
