E11 Leytonstone
Stations - Leytonstone, Wanstead and Snarrook (Central), Leytonstone High Street (BR Barking line).
The postal district covers two areas, Leytonstone proper is in the north eastern projection of the Victorian terraces which start in Stratford and push their way up to the Green Man roundabout to meet the outliers of Epping Forest and Wanstead flats. Across the roundabout Wanstead is a separate area and considered a little more exclusive by some of its inhabitants, for which privilege they pay a bit more in the pubs.
The beer range is generally dominated by the larger brewers but a sprinkling of guest beers (especially in some of the managed houses) have added to the range available. Free houses are few, and from the west of the Central line up to Whipps Cross there is very little of anything - thanks to the Quakers who built a number of "dry" estates here in the nineteenth century.

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!
