Is that so? My old mum was born in Princes (by then Swedenborg) Square.

There was an existing Socialist club at 23 Princes Square and I believe the people from Berner Street published the Arbeiter Frainte out of there after they left their earlier premises. See the following excerpt from The Commonweal of June 1888 which shows Socialist activity in London that summer. Note the notice in the right column that advertises a show taking place at the Princes Square club and that also mentions the Berner Street club. According to the Casebook Wiki, "After being evicted from the [Berner Street] premises in 1892, the club settled with several temporary bases until 1906 when it settled in Jubilee Street, Whitechapel."
