The pub was where my Grandmother Daisy M Saunders ( Then Beaman ) and her second husband Fred Beaman used to run from the 1950ís through to approximately 1967/8. They gave up the pub when my Grandmother had a bad fall and broke her thigh. Fred, before he was a publican I was told, was a test driver for the Routes Motor Company he had a lot of memorabilia from his days at Routes. *

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!
