My grandfather ran the pub but unfortunately I do not have the exact dates. I think it would have been following Walter Farrance. My mother was born in 1907 and they were living there when she was at senior school in Cambridge and after she left school, when she used to deliver telegrams for the Post Office opposite the pub.
From that I think they would have been there from about 1918, I know they were living in Whittlesford in 1935 when my mother was married. *

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!
