George Tempany Smith ran the Wine Vaults at 24 Great Darkgate Street in the late 1860s. He'd married the daughter of the White Horse in 1853. Is there a connection? Same building, new name?Notes:
The late Mr Evan Jones, painter, having built the houses in Great Darkgate-street now occupied by Mr W. T. Williams and Mr Culliford, they were purchased by Mr Smith, who then [by 1864] removed from the White Horse to the Wine Vaults in Great Darkgate-street, and succeeded in building up one of the best businesses in the town. ... Mr Smith took out an auctioneer's license, and sometime afterwards gave up the business in Great Darkgate-street to Mr Clarke, a stationmaster at Aberystwyth, who was succeeded by the late Mr Culliford.
