Melvilles 1858 Directory of Kent.

THE ISLE OF GRAIN is a completely isolated spot, between the Medway and Yantlett Creek. The church formerly belonged to the nunnery at Minster, in the Isle of Sheppey; it is dedicated to St. James; it stands alone, in a dreary spot. The Rev. George Davies, of Rochester, is the patron and vicar. Letters are conveyed by the Strood carrier at an extra charge of 1d. for each letter. The Isle of Grain is 13 miles from Strood, and three miles from the nearest parish. The population in 1851 was 260.

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!
