Barking pub history index
A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Essex. The Essex listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.
This pub was built as the Peto Arms in 1850, later becoming the Railway Hotel in the mid 1890's; but was demolished in 1906 when the level crossing at East Street was replaced by a bridge. The listing in Kelly's Directory for 1908 is interesting, possibly just showing the time lag between the research and the publication of these directories, or maybe the pub lived on briefly after the bridge was built. ***

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!
