My Great grandfather, John Asser, was landlord at the Lord Nelson in 1891. His brothers Samuel and Stephen had the Queens Hotel, Victoria Park and the Royal Oak, Victoria Park. I have this information after researching my family tree. Their father (I think) lived at 25 White Post Lane, Grange House, Bow - The Lord Napier. ***
In 1901 census Samuel Asser was the landlord of The Queens Hotel, 274
Victoria Park Road.
If you are interested, attached is a picture of an R Whites bottle which hung in the bar. It has a pear with whiskey in it. The pear may have been grown in the orchard at the rear of the pub. ***
