London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Broad Face, 9 High Street, Reading, Berkshire

It apparently closed in 1929, and eventually became an extension to the Lloyds Bank.The archway to the stabling area can still be seen. But to add a bit more interest to this subject I,can`t help thinking that the old building to the right of the arch, (green tiles and Arabs heads),was another entrance to the also defunct ,Sarasens Head that was situated in at No 3 Kings Rd.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
