I have a John William Still, born 1882 in Camberwell; on the 1901 census he is living at Danby Street, Camberwell and is a 'brewer's clerk'. When he gets married in 1904 he is now a 'publican' and he is at Courthill Road, Lewisham, i.e. the Queens Arms. His father, John (b.1861 Hastings, is now living in the Camberwell area), and is also noted as a 'publican' on the marriage certificate. On the 1911 census they have left the pub trade and moved to Bromley. ***

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!
