Enterprise, 67 & 69 Chicksand Street, Mile End

Mile End Pubs history

Chicksand Street (formerly known as Halifax Street) intersected halfway along King Edward Street (which no longer exists). The Enterprise pub was located at the north-west corner of that intersection, at the far eastern end of Chicksand Street. In the 1861 census, it is listed as 17 Halifax Street, roughly halfway through a list of properties along the western side of King Edward Street (starting at the southern end with the beer house at 1 King Edward Street, and moving north along the street). In the 1871 census, the same halfway point is listed as 11a King Edward Street, and in 1881 as 13 King Edward Street. However, all these are the same property, which in the 1882 directory is given as 1 Halifax Street, and later renamed Chicksand Street. *
