TQ3382 : Shoreditch: 'The Conqueror'

taken 8 years ago, near to Shoreditch, Islington, Great Britain

Shoreditch:  'The Conqueror'
Shoreditch: 'The Conqueror'
At the extreme northern end of Boundary Street*, where it meets Austin Street. There are many pubs in Britain named after a monarch, and they seem to be roughly counted proportionately to the popularity of the monarch concerned, with Victoria and William IV high on the list. Not many are named after William I, (after all, he was a Frenchman who came here uninvited, and tried to make us all speak French), but this one on the fringes of Shoreditch, is one example. However, it now appears to be an ex-pub, although retaining its name and sign.
*So named because it runs along the boundary between Shoreditch and Bethnal Green. However, the extreme northern end did not run along the boundary, and was at first named 'Broadway' - although, of course, it was not very broad at all.
