London historical street directory and pub history

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

Perseverance, 112 Pritchards Road, Bethnal Green E2

Hackney pub history Index

This should be listed in Bethnal Green, not Hackney. The boundary ran along Pritchards Road at its northern end, but this is on the Bethnal Green/Tower Hamlets side, and it appears in Bethnal Green in the census. The address is 67 Anns Place, Pritchards Road in 1869, and 67 Pritchards Road in 1882, prior to street renumbering. *

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Hackney, Middlesex - now in East London. The Hackney, East London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

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!
