The main entrance to the hotel was in Victoria Street and inspite of the name, 'George and Railway Hotel', this may account for a statue of a young looking Queen Victoria.

THE George Railway pub we see at Temple Gate today is solidly Victorian, dating back to about 1860, but much earlier inns stood on the site. The earliest reference to it as The George dates back to 1703 when it is mentioned in connection with four towers of “half moones”. These “half moones” would be semi-circular bastions connected with the Portwall, a 12th or 13th-century defensive structure which ran through the area. A century ago, a Bristol historian stated that The George had been established as a rival to another inn, the ancient Saracen’s Head, directly opposite. The Saracen’s Head appears in a list of inns for 1606, but may of course have been much older. Both were coaching inns catering for the trade on the busy roads to Bath and Wells. Another historian says that The George Inn was established to, “remind the passenger of the invader of the Saracen personified by St George, the champion of England.” The inn gets a few mentions throughout the 18th century when it was used for the holding of inquests, then a common practice. Numerous Victorian street directories from 1845 onwards would seem to indicate that the pub changed its name from time to time. Before 1860, it’s called the George and Dragon later becoming, in line with the increase in passengers on the Great Western Railway, the George Inn and Railway Tavern. It’s thought that the railway company, which may have been responsible for the rebuilding, owned the place about this time. After 1870, it became The George and Railway Hotel, the “and” and “hotel” being dropped later. It’s thought that the present building – now Grade II-listed (which means it must be preserved) – exists on the same site as the former coaching inn. Parts of the old inn may have been incorporated into the new one. The rail bridge associated with construction of the Harbour Railway in the 1860s passed close to the pub and may have meant some destruction. This iron bridge, which I am sure many readers will recall before its demolition, passed through a tunnel at Redcliffe before making its way to Wapping Wharf and beyond. The railway closed in 1964, but a section is still used by the popular Portbury and Henbury steam trains.
The Great George: Charlottetown's Historic Boutique Hotel
The Great George: Charlottetown's Historic Boutique Hotel
Located on Great George Street just a short distance from Province House National Historic Site, sits the Great George Hotel. Originally named The Regent Hotel, the Great George was first built in 1846 by James H. Downe. A few years later when merchant Henry Haszard bought the building, he turned it into the London House; selling everything from parasols, corsets, boas, tea caddies, nails, to groceries. In 1857, Mr. Haszard remodeled the property back into a fashionable hotel. At the height of its popularity, the Pavilion Hotel even had the distinction of hosting some of the delegates from the 1864 Charlottetown Conference on Union, where Prince Edward Island became known as the Birthplace of Confederation. More than 120 years later, the current restoration began in 1990 as the brainchild of Mike Cassidy and current owners, the Murphy family. They also started re-envisioning this entire section of downtown Charlottetown, taking over adjacent heritage buildings to become part of a larger hotel.

British Massage Parlour Guide (no. 10)
Have you ever felt the need for a relaxing massage, but not known where to go, what to do and what to expect?

Perhaps you have rung up, been assured the facilities are first class and the staff the best in town. All too often when you turn up you discover the reality is rather different. In some establishments you will not be able to inspect the staff and facilities until you have parted with a not inconsiderable fee. Having criss-crossed the country over and over again for the past four years, George McCoy has now come up with the guide of the century - the first comprehensive guide to this nation's massage parlours.

Now you can tell where to go and where not to go.
Where the most beautiful girls are.
Where there are exotic selections of ladies from all around the globe.
Where the most sumptuous surroundings are to be found.
When the parlours are open.
How many ladies you will find in any particular parlour.
Which parlours have saunas, jacuzzis, videos etc.
Even notes on where to park your car...

Suffice it to say that this guide is now your best bet to separating the fact from the fiction in this industry. Designed to take the guesswork out of choosing a massage parlour, and to give you some indication of the best masseuses, it will provide you with all the information you might expect to receive (after suitable interpretation) prom the management - and a great deal more. Where a lady is recommended, I have had numerous reports as to how well the lady performs. Where it is simply indicated that she is of note, I have only had the odd report on her ability. Where credit is due - for facilities, cleanliness, value, choice, quality etc. it is duly given. Where there is clearly room for improvement, we say so. In every case, our purpose remains the same: we intend to provide an objective, honest and accurate appraisal of every massage parlour in the country.
