Smashing picture of the Kings Arms Fosney, that is the first time I have seen a picture of it. Looking at the list the place to the right of the Kings Arms is a Restaurant, I would never have guessed that. I did think there was a sweet shop along there but it seems I was wrong, maybe I got it mixed up with the Toy Shop? Like some of the other members I remember going to the Old Kent Road cinema, drinking in both the pubs and getting a bag of crackling from the Fish & Chip shop (Old Joe’s).

1908 J.D.Rowan became headmaster until he retired in 1932
1968 The Old Kent Road School closed.

Route 36 tram [21] at Bricklayers Arms.jpg
Old Kent Road - Bricklayers Arms

Route 36 tram [21] at Bricklayers Arms/Old Kent Road junction.The area is now the Bricklayers Arms flyover. The tram is entering the Bricklayers arms junction. The building on the right is the Old Kent Picture house (the billboards for "Coming Attractions" can just be seen) and the white building behind the tram is the Globe Pub. All these buildings have now gone.

I found this picture and as the text above states that the white building behind the tram was the Globe Pub? I have never known it as a Pub only a Cinema, can anyone confirm this?

Bermondsey Boy I can only remember the Globe as a cinema and never as a pub It must have been converted pretty late in the day. Can anyone remember the the shop next to the other cinema SPO, Sausages Potato and Onion, as I remember, it was a wonderful place to go for a feed on a very wet cold day.. Would love a photo of the Brick with the tram and the Globe Please . Cheers Mate Ron
