E9 Homerton
Stations - Homerton and Hackney Wick (BR North London).
It has been said that few people known where Homerton is and even fewer really want to. However, that is a little unfair given that the area - the part of Hackney extending north from Victoria Park - represents a microcosm of East London housing developments. Going south from Homerton High Street blocks of soulless postwar flats give way to surviving Victorian terraces and then to the re-gentrified areas near Victoria Park. In this area there is an interesting selection of free houses, although elsewhere in the district the typical pub is a Big Four owned local, often fairly small and as likely as not under threat of closure.

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!
