London historical street directory and pub history

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

Fox & Goose, 584 London Road, West Thurrock

The Fox & Goose at West Thurrock became a well and truly dead pub on Good Friday, 2012.  It was bulldozed to the ground much to the annoyance of the local residents and following its recent closure. I have many fond memories of the pub and I first set eyes on my wife there nearly 40 years ago.  +

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!
