Old Licensee leaves. In customary and expressive phrase, another landmark in Fakenham is removed by the severance of Mr Theodore M. Barnes from Fakenham, after being licensee of the `Sun Inn', Norwich Street for about 29 years. He is a native of Fakenham, and is the oldest licensee in town, in point of length of service. He and his wife have gone to reside at Reading, to join other members of their family and they removed on Wednesday, this week. He has always been respected and conducted his business beyond reproach.
