Old Kent Road --Dun Cow

Another picture of the Dun Cow- Old Kent Road some time after the trams had gone and the lines removed. The pub is still open and the Trumans sign can be seen at the top of the building.
The shops to the right of the picture are still open with the cycle shop on the corner.
Today all that remains is the pub building the pub has closed and the old shops in Dunton Road

I think this is once again opposite Albany Road,? the small street being Humphrey Street,with what looks like another Bakers shop on the corner. The picture on Page 2 with the collapsed building is I think the same area but with different shops, owing to this being the 1900s a much earlier time.

Bricklayers Arms-Old Kent Road

Most of the pictures we see of the Bricklayers Arms are of the Pub that stood on the Right of Tower Bridge Road. Today we have a picture of what stood on the Great Dover Street side of the junction, the shops look as though they are having a demolition sale

Old Kent Road-Briclayers Arms

Picture of the Bricklayers Arms - opposite the Bricklayers Arms Public House stood another Public House a Trumans pub named The Kings Arms.

The picture shows the dray delivering beer, to the left of the pub we have a partial sighting of The Old Kent Picture House.

Who remembers going to the pictures in this establishment or using this pub ?

Fosney, thanks for posting this picture of the Kings Arms. I think it was a much more popular pub than the Bricklayers Arms, especially for younger people in the early 1960's. This is the first picture of the pub that I've seen on this site, and any other site, so you've done a good job researching it.
I can remember going to the Old Kent cinema, many times.
My Mom was an usherette at the Trocette cinema and the Old Kent cinema for a short while in the 1950's. She never kept a job for long, as I think she got bored with the routine of things. She was also a street crossing guard (Lollipop Lady) for Web Street School, for kids to go across TBR. She did that job for some time in the early 1960's.

Hi fosney
I used to go to Saturday morning pictures at the Old Kent. When we came out we went straight round to Joyces for pie and mash, (yes Joyces for us, not Manzes). It was a perfect way for us kids to spend Saturday. I also used the Kings Arms a few times when I was courting.
Oh such fond memories of growing up in Bermondsey
