Application made by Morgans Brewery, Friday 24th August 1900 for the licence of Mr. William Balls, of the PHILADELPHIA BREWERY, to be removed to a new house to be built on the Aylsham Road. It was said to be a small matter since the new site was about 50 yards from the old one and the new house would only be somewhat larger.
