West Arms, 26 Birchfield Street, Poplar E14

Existed from at least 1881. At 24 & 26 Birchfield Street, by 1891. According to the Truman Hanbury Buxton records in the National Archives there was a pub of theirs called the "West Arms" on Birchfield Street until 1932, so I can only assume this is the same property. See the Archival reference. ***
