King Albert, 126 Harford Street, Mile End E1

Mile End Pubs history

Renamed from the Prince of Prussia to King Albert between about 1899 and 1901, although the 1910 directory entry is for the Prince of Prussia. At 74 Harford Street in 1884 and earlier, numbering above number 70 appears to have been renumbered by about 1891. The address is listed in the 1860 license transfer and the 1871 census and 1875 license transfer as 4 Bruges Terrace.

I was researching Harford Street, as my family lived at No.156 from 1890-1940, and my 2g.grandmother was at No.124 in the 1891 census. The Prince of Prussia is then at 126 Harford Street. ***
