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.
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!
