Melvilles 1858 Directory of Kent.

PLUMSTEAD is an extensive parish, in the lathe of Sutton-at-Hone, Lessness hundred, Lewisham union, West Kent, and London bishopric. The population in 1851 was 8,373. There are many beautiful villas and residences, which enjoy the advantage of vicinity to Woolwich and of the military reviews and parades of that garrison. The church of this parish is a very ancient foundation, but of late years has been much improved. The living is a vicarage, with East Wickham annexed, in the
incumbency of the Rev. William Acworth, M.A. Close to the common are brickfields, tile kilns, sandpits and chalkpits. Sugar moulds are made here. The North Kent railway passes through; and at this point there is a station (Abbey Wood), it being the nearest point to Bexley Heath, or New Bexley.

POST-OFFICE.- Shooter's Hill,. Thomas Shelley, Postmaster.. Letters arrive through
Woolwich. Money Orders are granted and paid at this Office.

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!
