The owner of the Chippendale Arms, 204 Millfields Road, Hackney, E5 from c.1947 to at least 1965 was Peter Curtis. Peter Curtis was the owner for all the time I can remember. We used to go in there frequently to buy soft drinks and vinegar so we knew Peter quite well. My dad also used to rent a lock up garage from him which was at the rear of the off licence. *

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!
