Hackney pub history Index

This pub closed in 2009 and has been converted to a betting shop. **

This pub was established as the Eight Bells in 1665 and later had the address 347 Mare Street. It was demolished in 1880 when the road junction and railway crossing was redeveloped and a replacement pub was built at 339 Mare Street, with the new name Railway Tavern.
It was again rebuilt in 1955 following wartime bomb damage. **

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!
