The Angel and Crown Pub originally stood on the opposite corner of Smart Street and Roman Road at No 180. In 1951/2 it was relocated at 170 Roman Road under the new block of flats called Chater House.

The landlord at the time was Cyril Trowbridge who ran the pub with his wife Helen known as Nellie. They ran both the old and the new pub until 1964. I know this information is correct as it was the family’s local.

Prior to taking over the Angel and Crown in 1950 Cyril was the landlord at The Railway Tavern at 131 Globe Road, Bethnal Green from 1946 to 1949. ***

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!
