    The Saracen's Head, Aldgate

    Hi Tim,

    The last picture of the Anchor, Bankside, brings back memories. I used to drink there in the early 1980s when I lived in London. The story was that the place used to be a brothel frequented by Boswell, the writer, and all the rooms were named after the girls who worked there.

    If I remember correctly, they were demolishing the old Clink prison at that time.

    It was also close to the Bear Pit theatre, an early venue for Shakespeare, I remember going to see 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' there - on the 21st June.

      A follow up to my last post.

      I've been digitising some old photo albums and found these from around 1982. they are of the Anchor and surrounding area.

      Compare the pic of the Anchor a hundred years ago with mine
