The Rising Sun, Printers place in the 1862 license transfer and in 1874; the 1841 and 1848 refer to the address as at 12 Printers place. The modern address is 74 Old Jamaica Road. * Shortly before it's demolition, it featured as The Rock in the football hooligan film ID (1995) Starring Reece Dinsdale, Sean Pertwee and Warren Clarke as the landlord. It seemed to be the last building left standing on that side of the street. ***

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!
