E6 East Ham
Stations - none. East Ham and Upton Park (District) are just outside the area and Beckton (DLR) is expected to open during the currency of this guide.
Spreading along the Barking Road forming part of the sprawling mass of Victorian urban development between Stratford and Barking or Ilford, East Ham also extends downwards to Beckton and the edges of the Docklands developments. The two parts are divided by the A12 bypass, south of which there used to be mainly derelict land extending as far as Beckton Gas Works - once famed since its owners refused to allow any electricity on the premises, even for lighting.
Now, a mushrooming growth of hypermarkets extends from the Ski slope (near the A12) as far as the little community of Cyprus just north of the Docks. Pubs here are few and the best range in the area is back on the Barking Road near the station, where a good selection of Victorian town pubs near the well restored Town Hall, gives some relief from the more suburban types elsewhere. However, domination of the pubs by the Big Four is general - although guest beers are starting to creep in.
West Ham United (a lesser known club than Leyton Orient) have their football ground near Upton Park station.

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!
