This appears to be the same pub as is later called the Half Moon from at least 1856 onwards. The address is given as 43a Lower Shadwell in the 1851 census, as well as simply 43 Lower Shadwell in some directories, and as Bell Wharf, Lower Shadwell in archival records. It is variously referred to as both the Swan and the White Swan. *
