Waterman’s Arms

Brilliant post!

Isle of Dogs - Past Life, Past Lives

What’s in a Name?

In the 1870 map below, a public house (P.H.) is shown at the corner of Newcastle St and Wharf Rd. This was the Newcastle Arms, built by William Cubitt as part of his Cubitt Town development, and opened in 1853. By 1962, names had changed, and the same pub was the Waterman’s Arms and was on the corner of Glengarnock Avenue (later Glenaffric Avenue) and Saunders Ness Rd. To make things more confusing, the pub is named The Great Eastern these days.

Newcastle Arms aka Waterman’s Arms aka Great Eastern is not a good title for a post, so I decided to use the name most familiar to me, the name I used when it was my local – Waterman’s Arms (not to be confused with the Waterman’s Arms that used to be at the north end of West Ferry Rd, ahem).
