    How about this one as the basis for a conspiracy theory?

    “...A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
    As night descends upon this fabled street:
    A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
    The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
    Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
    And it is always eighteen ninety-five.”

      Despite its name I think it is really in a place called Whitechapel. Nothing much ever happened there: move along.

      My last pint in London last year at Xmas was in the Pride of Spitalfields. Not been home since, flipping covid!

      Strange I was just thinking of that place (probably of that last pint), do we know if it was open in 1888?

          Interesting! If I am right in remembering it is just over the way from what used to be the frying pan pub, of Nichols fame, on brick lane!

              There was a brewery connected to the old pub on the site 3-7 Heneage St, John Turner & Sons. Not sure what the name was then, if any. It became the Romford arms when it started being supplied by the Star brewery in Romford, possibly around 1891. The two breweries may be connected, but Turner's moved to another location soon after. The pub remained. It became the Pride of Spitalfields when the supplying brewery changed to Fullers.
