Rose Of Denmark

Picture source: Pat Jolly

The Rose Of Denmark was situated at 78 Shirley Street. This was a Watneys pub that dated back to 1867. It  closed in 1993 and was demolished in the late 2000s (see photo of site below). Actually left to fall down of its own accord with possible assistance by local vandals might be a more accurate way of putting it. Before the closure of the local docks it opened at 6am. The name Rose of Denmark refers to Princess Alexandra of Denmark who married Prince Edward (later Edward VII) in 1863. There is another pub in E16 called The Princess Alexandra, which is still open.
