The Jolly Waterman, 51 Rotherhithe Street

The Jolly Waterman, 51 Rotherhithe Street - in

It would appear that this is the Jolly Waterman which was at 51 Rotherhithe Street. The condition and quality of the picture is poor but it does show the premises two doors away is 'Newmans' Tailors shop, showing a street number of 53 (which would make the pub number 51) . It shows the name above the pub door as being G H WRIGHT.

The second photo showing a bar with four bar staff is probably the interior of the Jolly Waterman. Both photos were found together in the property of an elderly lady who passed away a couple of years back. I have no information as to her details other than she was known as 'Florrie'. She told stories of how she played in her uncles pub which backed onto the river (The Thames?) and how the yard was infested with rats

The man second from right in interior shot seems similarish to the man standing at the door of pub in exterior photo. Unfortunately there are no dates or notes written on the backs of the pictures.
The interior shot shows a lot of HENEKEY'S bottles and adverts for Port and Whisky. ***
