Poplar Willis Street  

Anyone remember Willis street in Poplar? I lived in Poplar in the 1950's to late 1960's on the Lansbury Estate, but often used the old tailors/cleaners in Willis Street for invisible repairs to suits. My aunt also lived in Willis Street. The tailors was in a line of Victorian terraced houses. There was a pub on the corner of Willis Street and Hay Curry Street - anyone remember its name? I was chucked out of it once because the landlord didn't like the look of me! I think it was owned by a man called Rawlings? Has anyone got any photos of the old Willis Street? Be grateful for any copies.  Mail-me
