Daniel Defoe in Stoke Newington, London

The pub the Daniel Defoe is on Stoke Newington Church Street and remembers its very famous resident.

This is the current pub sign.

And in the pub garden, this is clearly the old pub sign.

The above plaque is immediately opposite, at the side of 95 Stoke Newington Church Street:
Lived in a house
on this site.'

In the link below, a local history website goes to considerable lengths to locate Defoe's house in Stoke Newington.
