My Aunt Lilian Rose Croll was licensee to both the Admiral Keppel, 232 Hoxton Street, Shoreditch and the Kings Arms, 295 Hoxton Street, Shoreditch in the mid 1900s. She also had another pub which I believe was The Queen Victoria. There is a photo taken outside the Kings Arms of all the male customers who appear to be going off on a Pub Outing. *
