London historical street directory and pub history

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

Dover Castle, 118 Old Bethnal Green Road, E2

Bethnal Green pub history index

This pub closed in 2005. It was initially converted to use as a snooker hall, although by 2006 it had been demolished. ** The address is at 1 Old Bethnal Green Road in 1869 and earlier, prior to street renumbering. It is at 118 Old Bethnal Green Road by 1875. At 5a Old Bethnal Green Road in the 1861 census. By the 1871 census this is at 16 Old Bethnal Green Road.  (although the numbering of Old Bethnal Green Road is very idiosyncratic prior to its renumbering). * The directory information is definitely more reliable, and shows the address very near St Judes church and schools!

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!
