The East India Dock Road pub also appears to have traded under the name East India Dock Tavern (eg in 1865 and 1925). At 4 East India Road in 1856. This pub was re-built on the site of an earlier tavern in 1818 and was again rebuilt between 1927 and 1935. It was demolished in 1958 during the widening of the approach road to the Blackwall Tunnel. **

The Cardosis cafe is on the corner of East India and Brunswick Road, as is the tavern. My family's cafe was Cardosis which is central in the picture, I think the year is 1955.

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!
