Mariners Arms, 152 Shadwell High Street / 395 The Highway, Shadwell E1

This pub was present by 1839. At Ocean Row in 1841 (maybe a private address?); and only named in the 1901 census and is now demolished. The address alters to the Highway by 1938, and is almost certainly the beer retailer at 395 The Highway. ** Demolished in 1967. *
