Women at the Wicket: A History of Women's Cricket in Interwar England. Written by Adam McKie

Red Lion, 140 Balaam Street, Plaistow E13

Plaistow index

This pub was later known as the Phantom and Firkin, and then the Village at Plaistow, but is now closed and demolished. It is named as the Old Hop Pole in the 1861 census, but is the Red Lion by the 1871 census. There's also a Sun Fire Office insurance record of a property "near the Red Lion, Plaistow, Essex" dated 1807, so it may date back to then. *

If you would like to contribute the amazing new project to map London over the last hundred years and more, please continue to read. What is needed is mainly details of when a London street was renamed, bombed, cleared, or tidied. Pictures are the best way of expressing anything, and a picture tells a thousand words. Also needed is those thousand words, or even fity words. Anything will be brilliant. Please help out before the London skyline is transformed for ever. What is needed, just an email to the Email the London team. We can do the rest; and you also get your name on the site, if this is OK.
