Blue Last

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 19 Compton Street, EC1V (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Note: The location on these maps is approximate.
London borough: Islington
Former name(s): Bender's Arms
Historical parish: Clerkenwell
Dates open: [1836]-[1934]
Notes: It appears to be renamed the "Blue Last" following the closure and demolition of the pub at 47 Compton St (see separate entry). The previous occupants (the Rider or Ryder family) are also listed in the 1871 census as "master timber benders", which presumably gives the pub its former name.
