My father Micheal William Johnson was the Landlord here for over 5 years in the mid seventies when it was a restaurant and bar; if I remember rightly it was part of the "Berni Inns group"... He later went on to buy the Riverside Inn at Earls Colne in Essex until he had to sell it, I believe it is an Indian Restaurant now. *+

Also if it is of any use, he ran the Clarendon Royal Hotel in Gravesend, Kent prior to The Horn for many years in the early seventies, again for the Berni Inn Group and bizarrely my son is the Head Chef there now! *+

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!
