Mile End Pubs history

At the corner of Railway Place and Entinck Street; The address is at 5 Railway Place in 1899 and earlier, and is at 6 Malcolm Place by 1940, following street renaming. It is also sometimes given as 5 & 6 Malcolm Place, so presumably expanded into both properties as 5 & 6 Railway Place sometime around the turn of the century, as there was no street renumbering. *

Albert Arms, Railway Place - Arthur Monk is the landlord.

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!
