London historical street directory and pub history

Most of the properties on my site are now probably listed on rightmove as residential property rather than pubs, perhaps they would like to sponsor this site?

Lion, 72 Angel Lane, Stratford E15

History of Stratford & West Ham

Lion, Angel Lane, Stratford - circa 1903

Lion, Angel Lane, Stratford - circa 1903

I found the Lion in Angel Lane (right in photo) by tracing the name "Skeels" in the 1901 census. The Skeel shop is centre left in the photo and just across the road from Henry Simmonds, the licensee in 1901.
