Marlow's principal inn was the Crown, a fine early 18th century building at the head of the High Street. A coach left the Crown and went via Maidenhead and Slough to London every day except Sunday. On this photograph the tall central archway leading to the stable yard is prominent and the assembly room of the Town Hall has been taken over by the inn.
The Crown Inn took over the covered market under the arches of the Town Hall and later sold the original building for conversion into shops
