The Royal Bar, sat on the corner of Scotland Street and Keyden Street which was formerly called Watt Street. The pub dates back to around 1872 owned by wine and spirit merchant James Taylor. Mr Taylor also occupied premises at 3 Finnieston Street, he resided next door at 5 Finnieston Street. He served the locals until the 1880s.

During the 1890s the licence changed hand a few times including George Weir and well known James Simpson. In 1899 Mr Simpson paid an annual rent of £39 and 10 shillings, he prospered in this pub, he resided at 240 Scotland Street in 1895 and in 1899 he was living in better accomodation at 137 Ardgowan Street. At the beginning of the 1900s Walter B Scott was licensee. During and after the First World War Charles McGarvey was the holder of the certificate. Many will still remember William Connelly who ran the pub in the 1950s and Margaret Anderson in the 60s.

Hope this is of some help.

Cheers

John Gorevan

John,

That was very interesting, I had no idea of the pub's history before 1947ish. William Connolly died in 1959 and his wife Elizabeth Connolly took over until its demise to make way for the Kingston Bridge in the late 60s early 70s. Mrs Mac (McNichol) and George Lynch helped out through this period. I do not know of a Margaret Anderson.

John,

Do you know where the name Margaret Anderson came from?
