Blue Last, 47 Compton street, Clerkenwell EC1V

Clerkenwell pub history index

This pub's name appeared to be transferred to the separate pub at 19 Compton Street after it closed (By 1885, and definitely sooner, the licensee James Hoare is listed as a beer retailer at 19 Compton street by then), though that pub existed before then under a different name. The address of 47 Compton street is listed in the 1881 census as being pulled down, although still listed in the 1880 directory and also the petty sessions. *
