The Salisbury Hotel was built by Mr John Cathles Hill as one of a pair of pub-hotels in Hornsey. Mr Hill was a successful developer in this part of North London and had his own workshops, where many of the fixtures and fittings for the pubs were made. The glass is notable for the incorporation of Art Nouveau motifs, a short-lived vogue at the turn-of-the-century. SOURCE: 'Victorian Pubs' by Mark Girouard, Yale 1984.
