Dog & Duck pub (site of) York Place, Rotherhithe, London, SE16
First recorded in 1805 and destroyed by a German VII rocket on 31-10-1944. Said to have been a pub on the site since 1723 and the name derived from the "sport" of hunting ducks by dogs on the adjoining marshes. On 23-09-1805 the then owner, Richard Frost, was called to a nearby house after Richard Patch had murdered Isaac Blight. The pub eventually stood between South and Greenland Docks (closer to the South Dock) and actually in Surrey Commercial Dock Passage, known to the locals as Dog & Duck Passage. This was a narrow path that led from today's Gulliver Street to Plough Way. Building shown is at the river end of Rope Street. Blue crane in the background faces South Dock. LinkExternal link
