Half Moon & Bulls Head pub (site) 238 Rotherhithe Street. Was about 500 yards east of the swing bridge near Brunel Road. First recorded in 1805 and closed about 1988. It was also known as 'Half Moon' and 'Bulls Head and Half Moon'. Since closing as a pub it has had three floors added and some changes to the front.

This pub closed in 1942 and has now been demolished. I think the pub was near Canada Wharf. ?

Purnell Place, Rotherhithe. Rear of a three-storey property. A woman and two children pose outside. A shed and outhouses are attached to the rear of the house. The house and Purnell Place no longer exist; it used to run south-east out of Rotherhithe Street, between Surrey House and the Half Moon & Bull Head Pub, c1911.
