  • Those windows with the rounded tops, as in post 1222 at the bottom, were very popular, weren't they? Similar if not identical to those in Miller Ct.

    Nice photos, folks.

      You know what I think has happened here with our comical friend?

      I think he had always assumed the archway to be Abel's Buildings and has now discovered - probably here - that the arch was the other end of the road without realising we've all known that for a few years now. He thinks he's made a major discovery but has STILL not got it quite right.

      Difficult to date the Brushfield Street one. I would put it most likely after 1725, as Hawksmoor's church is in the image.

      I would put it after 1725 because of the motor vehicles...

            And the White Horse Pub between 1870 and 1890. I've no idea where it is but it's a nice photo with all the vintage advertising on the wall.

              You've excelled even your own good self with that lot.

              Many, many thanks.

                Thanks for this - I don't think I've seen a photo of Greenfield Street from the period before. The White Hart was apparently on the west side at number 10, 6 doors north of Morris Lubnowski Cohen's house, where Aaron Kozminski was living before he was committed to Colney Hatch in 1891. Aaron's elder brother Isaac lived opposite to Morris on the east side of the street. (The numbers, both odd and even, ran north-to-south on the west side of the street, then south-to-north on the east side.)

                The entry shown in the photo must have led, via what's marked on maps as White Hart Place, to Yalford Street, which ran parallel to Greenfield Street, and where Aaron's other brother Woolf lived on the east side 3 doors to the north in early 1889 (and possibly at the time of the murders). Woolf's house would have backed on to the two-story houses shown on the right of this photo.

                • Thanks Stephen,

                  Hi Chris,

                  That's right, I don't think it was clear enough in the photo I posted, but there is a clear number 10 above the passage entrance.

                  The passage by the way is White Hart Court. According to the 1938 Goads, the numbering seems to have remained basically the same.

                      A literal deluge of great shots. Who needs JTR when you have all this?

                          • A poser.

                            Probably easy for some. Photo taken in 1969. Where is this?

                              Hi Rob -

                              I think it may well have been at 704 Woolwich Road.

                              The name of the publican, part-obscured by the overhanging lamp, seems to be A.H. Overton. If you look for this chap in the censuses, he is a licensed victualler at the Red Lion at 9 Greenwich Road in 1871 ...

                              He seems to have died in 1897q3.

                              In the Kelly's London Suburban Directory for 1896, this is the entry for the latter address:

                              This is his daughter, seen living with him in all the above censuses.

                              It's just possible that he had another White Horse, I suppose, but I would say that the odds are that this is the one in the Woolwich Road.

                              Regards,

                              Mark

                              • Rob, thanks for sharing those fantastic shots of the public houses. I have a love of old pubs and boozers, and am fascintated by the weird and often out of place carvings and motifs on the buildings.

                                It was interesting to see Vallance-road, as I have an interest in the Krays, and the areas they inhabited.

                                Great stuff as always.
                                Regards Mike
