Public Houses in Sydenham

SYDENHAM, which is now so well known as the site of the celebrated Crystal Palace, is in the parish of Lewisham, and distant seven miles from London. There are railway stations at the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, and Forest Hill. Here are numerous beautiful villas and residences, occupied by respectable and opulent families. St. Bartholomew's church is a handsome and spacious edifice, and was erected about 1830 ; and a new church, near Forest Hill, was built in 1854. There are also places of worship for Independents and Wesleyans.

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!
