I am no longer on twitter or facebook. I now have lots of time for London history, and London directories are receiving daily updates!
The 1937 directory for Essex is very important, as it appears to name the many beer retailers as named pubs for the first time. This listing should help in ensuring all of these pubs and beer retailers are on the site.
There are still a small number of beer retailers and also hotels. This listing of all three brings the number of licensed drinkling establishments in Essex, in 1937, to approximately 1700. You will not find parts of Essex which are now included in the London Boroughs, and these are listed in later London and suburban directories on this site.
This is a warning that you are at the bottom of the page. There is just one more piece of information below, the date this page was last updated.
