Black Boy, 88 Lower East Smithfield, Aldgate E1

Aldgate pub history index

Existed from at least 1762. This address appears to have disappeared by 1882. I think there is a strong chance that this is the pub that earlier had the address Salt-Petre Bank. ** This is at or by the Carron and the Black Lion & Carron Wharves.

Residents at this address.
