History of Stratford & West Ham

Lion, Angel Lane, Stratford - circa 1903

Lion, Angel Lane, Stratford - circa 1903

I found the Lion in Angel Lane (right in photo) by tracing the name "Skeels" in the 1901 census. The Skeel shop is centre left in the photo and just across the road from Henry Simmonds, the licensee in 1901.

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!
