The King's Head was my great-grandfather David Bloom's pub from 1900 until he died in 1926. The building was built in the 1820s in the early days of Commercial Road. Years ago it was very ornate and Victorian, and was repainted and restored in the 1970s. Unfortunately it was bought by a developer who destroyed the old pub and turned it into a commercial building about five years ago. The pub was in my great-grandfather's brother-in-law Abraham Golders's name from about 1900 to about 1906, and then in another brother-in-law David Harris's name, for a long forgotten legal reason. However, David Bloom was the tenant for 25 years and he and his family (wife, five children, mother, several nieces and nephews!) all lived in the rooms above the pub, where my grandfather, Benjamin Bloom was born in 1900. Tower Hamlets local history library has a photo. ***
