E13 Plaistow
Stations - Plaistow (District), West Ham (BR North London/District).
The World Guide to Beer locates Plaistow in the depths of rural Sussex, but unfortunately the reality is a little different and it actually lies south of Stratford, athwart the Barking Road and Northern Outfall Sewer (along which you can cycle). Part of the borough of West Ham, it lacks any centre since all the civic facilities are at Stratford. In the 1870s it was noted for potato fields and sheep farming, but now is partly industrial but mainly covered by rows of Victorian terraces, perhaps a little more complete than in other parts of East London and complemented by a reasonable range of pubs with some breaks from the Big Four. Entertainment is most likely to be found in those along the Barking 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!
