At the time of the 1939 Register (29 September 1939), Charles John Macdonald was recorded as "Licensed Victualler's Manager" at 217/219 Uxbridge Road.
Charles John Macdonald was an uncle of my mother. She said that her mother's side of the family (the Macdonalds) were in the publican trade, and at one time managed pubs at opposite ends of the road. Her mother worked as a barmaid for much of her life, and my mother grew up in Shepherds Bush. ***

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!
