Rifleman, 162 Horseferry Road, St John, Westminster

The address of this pub is given as Great Peter Street in the references from “The Era”. It was almost certainly on the corner of the two streets.
[Was the first Licensee, Mary Ann Lee (Mrs Mary Ann Lee, according to the Westminster City Archives Research Group), the wife/widow of the licensee of the Rochester Arms? She got the license here about a year after Thomas William Lee took over from her husband, and she took over the Rochester Arms from Thomas William about 6 weeks after transferring the license of The Rifleman to William Gillins.] *
