Pub history of the last 200 years, and a historical street directory of London and the UK

Search the pub history sites by licensee, address or pub. This is building into a historical street directory of parts of the UK, particularly in London
The pub history site is updated every day with masses of new and old information, please check back regularly. Incidentally, if I do some free research for you, a thank you would be nice.
