The Black Swan



The Landlords daughters, killed in air-raid, haunt this place.

Location: 148 Bow Road, Bow, London, E3 2SE

Description: The Black Swan pub, on the corner of Bow Road and Bromley High Street, was one of the first buildings in the UK to be destroyed in an air raid. In 1916 the pub was hit by a 100kg bomb dropped from a Zeppelin, killing four people. The landlord's two dead daughters, Cissy and Sylvia, are said to have come back to haunt the pub after it was rebuilt.

A plaque was added too above the front door saying:

THIS BUILDING WAS DESTROYED
BY GERMAN AIRCRAFT
SEPTEMBER 1916
REBUILT 1920

Does anyone know when it was pulled down?
