The Rose of Denmark

The Rose of Denmark, 78 Shirley Street, Borough of Newham, London E16, 2002 • Looks more like the Rose of Beirut, but is in fact at the head of London’s once-sleepy Silvertown peninsula just prior to massive redevelopment brought on by the DLR. It closed in 1993, before which, being a dockside pub, it opened at 6am. There’s a picture of it at its original three-storey height here; it’s now the site of a carwash.  My top photo also features in the book Formerly (right), where the pub is immortalised in poem by Tamar Yoseloff.
