Mile End Pubs history
Address formerly 1 Sidney Street. ** The photograph on the 3rd January
1911 depicts the Rising Sun at the corner of Sidney street and Stepney way.
The landlord is P Goldapple. This is the Siege of Sidney street, police have cordoned off the road keeping the public back in Stepney Way
while Scots Guards (from the Tower of London) fight heavily armed Latvian anarchists, holed up in number 100. The events were filmed by Pathe News and shown in cinemas the next day.
The pub closed some time in the mid 1930s, but much of Sidney street was destroyed during WW2. If you compare the 1941 and 1942 directories, many buildings disappear during this time. ***

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
