Five Alls / Queen Anne, Long Millgate

Former location of Five Alls / Queen Anne, Long Millgate. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.

The Five Alls stood opposite the Crown & Shuttle at the top of Long Millgate on the corner of Ducie Street in the mid 1800s [1].  Today's equivalent location is diagonally opposite the Ducie Bridge at the top of Corporation Street, in front of the expanded Victoria Station.  The Five Alls was run by Philemon Armitage in 1849, it was however previously and subsequently known as the Queen Anne, licensed from 1777 to 1897.  The origin of the name Five Alls is explained in Larwood & Hotten's 'History of Signboards' from 1867 [2]:

The Monarch - I rule all
The Priest - I pray for all
The Soldier - I fight for all
The Lawyer - I plead for all
John Bull - I pay for all
