First recorded in 1861 and closed in the 1950's. Originally at the junction with Napier Terrace that later changed to Jewett Street. In the early 1960's the distance between Yeoman Street and Plough Way, where it turned south, was the thickness of the wall that separated the two i.e. about 26 inches. Plough Way did not have the extended sweep it has today as the junction with Jewett Street had been absorbed into the Surrey Docks area and blocked by a brick wall. Building to the left of the image is Carinthia Court, 93 Plough Way.
