Curer of Athlete's Cough and Puller of Pints
But what more is there to know about former Chiswick publican Percy Gourlay?
He clearly thought himself something of an amateur doctor with his recommendations for Scott's Emulsion but what else do we know about Percy Gourlay?
Resident Publican of The Grove Park Hotel in the early 1990's, Percy Gourlay commissioned a print stamp to be made from lead (pictured below) inscribed with the exact wording published in a New Zealand newspaper (pictured right).
The current owner of the printing stamp is looking for further information on Percy and has asked ChiswickW4.com readers if they can help.
Built as the Grove Park Hotel in 1867, it was the first building on the new Grove Park estate of houses for the professional middle class.
Being right by Chiswick Railway station the hotel was designed to attract visitors who wished to take part in Chiswick’s riverside activities. The pub was sold in 2007 when the name was changed to The Old Stationhouse.
