My Friend who has recently moved to the area is searching his Grandfather. He was publican to The Half Moon and Bulls Head on Rotherhide Street approx 1944.. His name was RT Franklin.
I would appreciate any info or photos of the pub. The pub was knocked down around 1985 but might of been empty for sometime. The Sands film company was opposite during the filming of Little Dorrit ( original ).. Thankyou for any info you may have.. I am aware the Arriffs ? where the last known publicans before it was knocked to the ground..
Thankyou to anyone who has info to help with my friends search for his ancestry..
I think one of the Arif family have a bakers in walworth road still, it was just before manor place on the left hand side going towards the elephant, you could ask them if one of their relations had the pub, they may have some photos of it.
