Blackman Street - engraving in 1838 showing The Red Lion Pub, 68 Blackman Street now Borough High Street.
Presumably demolished for the construction of Southwark Street (built in 1864). I don't think this is correct as you can see it is on the corner of Great Suffolk Street and nowhere near to Southwark Street.
Borough High St was Blackman Street the Red Lion Pub..gif

The Red Lion was situated at 280 Borough High Street. This pub closed in 2015 when it was known as Ruse and was demolished the following year.

The Crown was situated at 213 Borough High Street. Only the main facade now remains.jpg

George Chapman was a notorious Victorian serial killer. Having lived previously in the East End and in the United States, by the late 1890s he was back in London, and lived in this building on Borough High Street. It was The Crown Pub at the time, and George was the landlord.
Maud Marsh died on 21 October 1903 after being poisoned at the Crown pub in Borough High Street. George Chapman was executed (hanged) at Wandsworth Prison less than three weeks later, on the 7th April 1903.
