    The Turks Head at 308 Brick Lane was my parents pub. My father, Thomas Arthur Crow was the licensee, I don't have exact dates but do have one of their original wedding invitations of April 1945 with this address on. This address is also on a birth certificate in June 1946, and I think they left in 1951/2. Before this my father had the licence for The Gunn in Spitafields, my uncle Alfred Crow was the licensee of The Northampton Arms in Headlam Street Bethnal Green, this is also on the wedding invitation as it was a double wedding. *

    Other family pubs are The White Hart in Commercial Street; The Green Man at 276 Old Kent Road; and The Railway Bell at Tooting *
