A foundation date of 1736 is usually given for this pub, which was rebuilt in its present form in the 1850s. Before the coming of the railways it was called the Cow House; At 9a Liverpool Street in 1869;and at 15 Liverpool Street by 1891. The 1861 census records a Railway Tavern at Railway Place, St Katharine Coleman; I believe this to be here **

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 1840 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
