Joseph Powell became licensee of the GARIBALDI TAVERN c1880.
The house was then said to be so insignificant that it was often obscured by smoke from trains at the nearby Beach Station.
Mr Powell extended the property to allow accommodation and by 1899 it was a boarding house with four floors.

The Victorian building initially offering accommodation to men only.
Cheap holiday accommodation was a specialty.

Apparently the male guests were known as ` The Yarmouth United Lambs ' who had a captain to respond claims of rowdiness. By 1883 the first annual dinner of `Joe Powell's Lambs ' was held at the Holborn Restaurant, London, Joe Powell being the principal guest for many years.
