On This Day: 3rd of May

On this day in 1887:

Tennent's Bar
The Lanarkshire Licensing Court, considering applications for licences for the sale of exciseable liquors, was presented with petitions opposing the granting of a public house licence to Hugh Tennent for premises on Byres Road. The University opposed the granting of the licence on the grounds that its gymnasium "faced Ashton Terrace, and Ashton Terrace was in direct line with the public house. The College authorities were apprehensive that it might be a temptation to the students when going home fatigued in the evening after their exercise in the gymnasium." The licence was granted.
