This photograph was meant to show the former Lord Nelson pub at 2, Avon Street but unfortunately the photographer chose the wrong building and instead took a photo of the side of William Maidment's store. The Lord Nelson opened as a beerhouse on the opposite side of the road in about 1864 and closed in 1907. There was also a Lord Nelson at 84, Avon Street, but it closed around 1839. From a photographic survey from 1965-1966 of over 300 existing or lost pubs and breweries in Bath and the surrounding area. Photographed in June 1966.
