London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Navy Arms, 13 Samuel Street, Woolwich SE18

Woolwich index

The Navy Arms is at 6 Queen Street until at least 1882. It is at 13 Samuel Street by 1896, I am guessing through street renaming.

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!
