Whilst searching the archives I also came across a Samuel Baws (Israel's brother I think) who is listed as the License holder for the Prince of Wales, 16 Northdown Street from Sept 1915-Jul 1924. These premises were in Pentonville ward and were supplied by City of London Brewery, Upper Thames Street. ***

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!
