The 1991 edition of the East London Beer Guide - East London & City CAMRA

E10 Leyton
Stations - Leyton (Central), Leyton Midland (BR Barking line).
Leyton forms part of the amorphous mass of Victorian terraces extending out from Stratford, in this case in a generally northerly direction until Walthamstow is reached at the Lea Bridge - all of which is in the E10 district. On the west side it is bordered by the Hackney and Leyton Marshes, where bear hunting is said to be more rewarding than beer hunting. The area around the church is a redeeming feature and they also have a famous football club, which since the last Guide has even made the Third division. Leyton Orient is said to be the friendliest club in London - it has to be really, there are enough supporters for them all to be on first name terms.
The pubs are a bit of a mixture but you should find some good free houses, which have done a great deal for the beer range, and a number of corner locals remain.

E10 DRUM: 557 Lea Bridge Road. (A2/6) , THEAKSTONS XB, . Formerly Nancys. Split-level pub that sadly may become victim of a new road scheme which will no doubt move the traffic jam a few miles down the road.

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!
