Marquis of Waterford, Russell St

Recommended Posts

Any more info on the Marquis of Waterford, 2 or 4 Russell St please?

A haunt of Charles Peace and would like to know exactly where it was and perhaps find a pic . The landlord was Cragg.

thanks

mike

I think it was here - corner of Russell Street and Bower street in 1890. By the 1950's there was a weighbridge and industrial buildings on the site.

Pugilism.

Bell's Life in London and Sporting Chronicle 16 December 1865.

It seems possible that The Marquis of Waterford may have also been a Boxing Venue in its past.
The Fight Mentioned lasting 66 Rounds in 1 Hour 45 Minutes.

Intriguing although also horrible. Did J P Bean write something about fighting? I expect there would have been a big crowd. Thanks for efforts
