William Booth is commemorated by a nearby statue. The Blind Beggar is notorious for its connection to East End gangsters 'The Kray Twins'. On 9 March 1966, Ronnie Kray shot and murdered George Cornell, an associate of a rival gang, the Richardsons, as he was sitting at the bar. The murder took place in the then saloon bar.
