Ronnie Kray murdered George Cornell here, a bullet in the eye.
Location: 337 Whitechapel Road, E1 1BU
Description: It was here that Ronnie Kray murdered one of his many enemies, George Cornell of the Richardson gang, by shooting him through the eye on March 8th 1966.
By a strange coincidence, given the pub's name, this was also where Bulldog Wallis, a pickpocket and ruffian, killed a man by pushing an umbrella tip through his eye.
