- 1963/Mr William (Bill) Hobbs. *

Mr William (Bill) Hobbs had the pub until March 1963 although it was still known as Cuthbert's but my mum and dad (John and Margaret Birrane) took over from Bill Hobbs. They ran it until March 1990. Until then it had been a mix of east end regulars and Irish clientele. I think that Bill might be the gap between 1944 and 1963. *

When they left, they were the longest serving publicans in Hackney at the particular point in time when they retired. *

1990/Peter Duffy and his wife took over from my parents. *

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!
