Many accurate 1921 census transcriptions have already been added to the pub history site, including London, and parts of Middlesex.

Gun, 54 Brushfield Street, Spitalfields E1

Address formerly 30 Union Street East and 31 Brushfield Street. The pub was re-built at 54 Brushfield Street, a few yards down the road, at the time that Spitalfields Market was redeveloped - I think in 1929. ** This pub dates back to at least 1731 and possibly back as far as at least 1588. It closed on February 20th 2015 to be demolished as part of the Spitalfields redevelopment. *
