Black Lion

Date of photo: 1915

Picture source: Charlie Goodwin

The Black Lion was situated at 63 Hanbury Street. This pub was present by 1848 and in the second part of the nineteenth century it was run by the Tilney family, which suggests that it is likely to have sold the products of Tilney’s Alma Brewery, located just around the corner in Spelman Street.  The pub was still open in 1917, but had closed by 1923.
