Island Pubs – Then & Now

This post is low on text and high on images: Then & Now photos of Island pubs. Nearly, but not quite, all old pubs are included – there are no photos of some old pubs (to my knowledge), and a modern view of some of pubs is not possible due to new buildings on the site. In all cases, click on the photo to see the full-sized image.

    Cold Harbour are poplar pubs.

    • It depends how you define the Isle of Dogs, which leads to plenty of discussion. My own definition says the nothern border is defined by the West India Import Dock, so that includes Cold Harbour. Had to draw the line somewhere.

    Fascinating. Thanks. I always remembered The Ship as green. Memory plays tricks. Also, it looks like the Tooke Arms has now gone from that photo.

    Found an old (1922) football programme for the Sunday morning Stratford & District League. The home team was Kingsbridge Athletic (from the Arms of that name) and most of the League’s clubs seem to have been from pubs on the IOD – Elder Tree; Vicar of Wakefield; Ship United; Royal Sovereign; The Harrow; Prince of Wales; Tenterden; Blue Anchor; Lord Nelson; Hearts of Oak; Regent and Buxton Athletic.
