Newport: the Tom Toya Lewis
Newport: the Tom Toya Lewis
Wetherspoon's pubs tend to be named after a local person or sometimes the building's former use. In this case, it is named after a 12-year-old paper boy who helped to save dock workers when the dock wall collapsed on 2 July 1909.

This picture is taken only a few days away from the centenary of the foundation stone being laid when the building was to become a YMCA. See ST3187 : Newport: foundation stone of YMCA in Commercial Street.
