I am no longer on twitter or facebook. I now have lots of time for London history, and London directories are receiving daily updates!
All Hallows Staining pub history index
The American Stores was formerly named the Horseshoe and Magpie (at 55 Fenchurch Street), adjacent to the King's Head at 53 & 54 Fenchurch Street (which by 1882 is renamed as the London Tavern). The American Stores is not mentioned separately after the 1910 Directory, and it appears to merge with the London Tavern into a single pub by 1915, with its address listed that year as 53, 54 & 55 Fenchurch Street. *
