One of the oldest pubs in Wivenhoe, The Black Boy was named after King Charles I who's black hair and swarthy complexion earned him the aforementioned nickname.

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!
