Cordwainers Arms, 53 Elthorne Road, Upper Holloway, N19

Islington index

At the junction with Ashbrook Road, named in 1896 and 1904. The address is at 1 Birkbeck Road in 1881 and earlier, prior to street renaming. This is named as the Birkbeck Tavern in the 1881 census return, but this is presumably a confusion with the pub of this name further to the east. *

I don't know the year Harry Chapman Taylor took on the Cordwainers Arms or left, but in a 1913 London commercial directory he has moved on to the Hat & Feathers public house, at 2 Clerkenwell Road. **
