London historical street directory and pub history

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

London Pub directory in 1971 - Bow E3

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Bow, Bromley and parts of early Mile End, London.

These all correspond to those public houses found in the London BT  1971 Telephone directories, although the telephone number is not registered as it would be wildly out of date. A few are from the 1970 directory. Links are back to the deadpubs site which shows a considerable amount of past history of the pubs and their past residents.

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!
