London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Star & Windmill, 216 Bermondsey Street, Bermondsey

Bermondsey pub history index

at 1 Star Corner in 1884 & earlier, then 153 Bermondsey New Road by 1891 (next to 1 Star Place in 1891 census); and the latest address is at 216 Bermondsey Street. The last recorded date I have is in 1938, suggesting it may have been damaged / closed in WW2.

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!
