Now the Duke of York, 64 Ellsworth Street, E2 (2006) ** Demolished by 2008 and replaced with flats.*

At its old address of 3 Grove Street. I finally found Grove Street on the 1853 map - on my 1916 map the street is marked as Shetland Street, and now it is Ellsworth Street! The address in 1911 is at 6 Shetland Street. The pub closed in 2005. **

The photo is of a ladies outing from the Duke of York, and it was taken during the nineteen twenties. Both of my great grand mothers are standing either side of the clown. They both lived close by; one in Jersey Street, and the other in Shetland Street, in which the Duke of York was at the time. Twenty years ago my mother lent this photo to the then owner who had it enlarged and placed on the wall in the bar there.
