Gardeners Arms, York Hill, Loughton

The Gardeners Arms, at the top of Loughton's York Hill, in April 1899, photographed from Woodbury Hill. From this point, known locally as Grout's Corner, there is one of the most extensive views in the south west of the county, looking across Metropolitan Essex to London and the hills of Kent. The Gardeners Arms began life as a tearoom. Next door, the ancient timbered Brittons Cottages still stand, and bear the date 1525. At 103 York Hill in 1937.

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!
