According to the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923, beat bobby number 16 would walk past the pub between the Rainbow and Golden Fleece, placing it somewhere near where we show it on the map. The pub has since been demolished as part of a road widening scheme.
Thomas William Mannall appears in the 1881 census as landlord of the Lord Palmeston in St Matthews Street (also one time landlord of the George Inn, Woodhouse St) (info from JOHN MARTIN)
