London historical street directory and pub history

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

Pub History Research in Italy - Herculaneum old pub.

Many pubs claim to be the oldest, and this old pub in Herculaneum claims to be at least as old as year 79 AD. As it was at the time covered in a pyroclastic flow of many metres of mud from the local Vesuvius volcano, and therefore much better preserved than Pompeii.

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!
