The Wandle pub was voted among the best pubs in Wandsworth by Londonist readers. The Wandle pub, by the river Wandle, in Earlsfield near Wandsworth. It was named after the Anglo-Saxon settler called Waendel. Previously known as ‘The Puzzle’ and ‘The Sailor Prince’, this name can still be seen on the side of the pub.

It’s believed that Earlsfield, Wandsworth, SW18 takes its name from a businessman called Robert Davis. Around 1868 he purchased Elm Lodge, on the eastern side of the Wandle Valley. He enlarged it and renamed it Earlsfield in honour of his mother, whose maiden name was Earls.

Robert's company, ‘Brown, Davis and Co’ invented the concept of the button-up shirt. Brown, Davis & Co. were a firm of Tailors and Gentleman’s Outfitters, who in 1871 registered the first patent for a shirt that buttoned all the way down the front. Up until this time shirts were pulled on and off over the head. 

Signed and numbered on the front at the bottom.
