American Stores, 53, 54 & 55 Fenchurch Street, All Hallows Staining, City of London EC3

All Hallows Staining pub history index

Existed from at least 1865 as the American Stores; which was formerly named the Horseshoe and Magpie (at 55 Fenchurch Street), and for a few years only named  the Victoria at the start of her reign as Queen, it was adjacent to the King's Head at 53 & 54 Fenchurch Street (which by 1882 is renamed as the London Tavern). The American Stores is not mentioned separately after the 1910 Directory, and it appears to merge with the London Tavern into a single pub by 1915, with its address listed that year as 53, 54 & 55 Fenchurch Street. *
