Public Houses in Southfleet

SOUTHFLEET is a pleasant village and parish, three miles from Gravesend. Here are the celebrated Spring Head Gardens, which are much frequented by the inhabitants and visitors of Gravesend, and from which are obtained a large supply of watercresses for the London market. The church is an ancient edifice, and contains several monuments and brasses.

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!
