Note the tiny cottages in Barn Street, Meadow Street, Edwards Lane and Lordship Road. These were declared a ‘Slum Clearance Area’ in 1934 and Denman House flats were built on the site of those small houses. This was a stark contrast to the grand houses of Church Row next door.

1848 map of Stoke Newington. Note the Hackney Brook running along the north end of Abney Park Cemetery, which opened 8 years earlier. Albion Road and Park Street (now Yoakley Road) are relatively new streets, hinting at the building boom that's to come in the 1870s-80s.

Paradise House (later school) in Paradise Row, Church Street opposite Clissold Park. It was pulled down to make way for Millington House flats. It was the childhood home of Jonathan Hoare, who had Clissold House built in 1790 (originally also called Paradise House).

Thanks! I’ve been keeping an eye on this one hoping to see something like this. Now just need to trace the business in the old trade directories. Perhaps it refers to the Whitbread brewery?

Note there used to be two entrances: Public Bar and Private Bar. The bar was originally in the middle, serving both sections.
