London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Red Lion, 140 Balaam Street, Plaistow E13

Plaistow index

This pub was later known as the Phantom and Firkin, and then the Village at Plaistow, but is now closed and demolished. It is named as the Old Hop Pole in the 1861 census, but is the Red Lion by the 1871 census. There's also a Sun Fire Office insurance record of a property "near the Red Lion, Plaistow, Essex" dated 1807, so it may date back to then. *

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!
