Have you ever run a Pub? You can add your pub history to the UK pub history site. You can contact the pub history site via my email : Kevan. There are over 10,500 images on the site and 45,000 pages of pub history which increases every day.
This is a local search engine of the UK Pub history site. You can search by surname, street address, or public house name. There are nearly 50,000 pages of pub history detail in this search engine; which is mainly historical. New pubs and additional detail is added every day, and the search engine updates weekly. If you are looking for a specific pub history listing, some of these can only be found in the sitemap - see the navigation bar on the left.

Hanbury Street, East London.
The Jack the Ripper story is exceedingly well documented by many at casebook.org - what a brilliant site. There are many amateur sleuths, and a whole host of detectives to the highest ranks on this site.
I just like to recreate some facts, in a simple format, e.g. a timeline of Hanbury Street; and its residents, and its Pubs in London.
A good start is to look at the Trade Directories and census available for these years. Starting with 1841, through the 1850's to about 1944 a hundred years later. Referring back to Hanbury Street - see map.
I have current access to Trade Directories of 1882 and later that show Hanbury Street as a rather long road. About 25 years earlier  it is split into four separate sections, and entirely different road names.
These four roads are : -
Browns Lane [2-26 Hanbury Street & 3 - 39 Hanbury Street]
Montague Street (aka New Montague Street)
Wells Street / Preston Street
The historical directory listing will use these as a base.
