Green Gate
Former address: 220 City Road (1910)
1 Powell Place, City Road (1856)
Dates open: [1788]-[1953]
Notes: Now a shop. The "Cumberland Head" mentioned in the 1856 directory may have once been a separate pub; an 1802 Sun Fire Office insurance record mentions a property "near the Cumberland Head on the north side of the City Road", so presumably was near where "London Assurance" is now (see separate entry).
