Mr Albert (“Ted”) Liversidge, of Denaby, yesterday took over the licence of the Red House hotel, Bridge Street, Swinton.

Mr Liversidge is a native of Mexborough, and at the age of 12 entered the service of James Whittaker and company, pawnbrokers and jewellers, with whom he worked for 30 years, latterly as manager, opening new branches at Denaby, Dalton Brook and Bentley.

He served with the K.O.Y.L.I. during the war but returned to Denaby on demobilisation in 1920, and took charge of Whittaker’s of Denaby branch.

Five years ago he took over the drapery and outfitting business of Edwards and Co., which he is to retain.

Eight years ago Mr Liversidge’s  father-in-law Mr Quinn Hawkins, retired after 40 years as licensee of the Red House, but Mr Lewis himself has not previously been connected with the licence trade.

Mr Liversidge was last April elected to the Conisbrough Urban Council.
