Railway Tavern, 2 Railway place / 2 London Street, St Katherine Coleman EC3

St Katherine Coleman index

The address is sometimes also given as 2 Railway Place, and as 5 New London Street in the 1881 census, but it is the same premises, listed consistently in directories as 2 London Street (which in modern times is still the site of a pub, at 2 New London Street). It is a separate pub from the Blackwall Railway Tavern/Hotel at 7 London Street, even though Frederick Bishop is listed as proprietor of both in the 1890s. Census records appear variously in All Hallows Staining, St Katherine Coleman and St Olave Hart Street. *
