Mile End Pubs history
Shandy Street was until at least 1874, previously called Alfred Street and the address of this pub was 33 Alfred Street, or sometimes 33 Alfred terrace. **
A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Bethnal Green, Middlesex - now in East London. The Bethnal Green, East London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.
Alfreds Head, 67 Shandy street, Mile End E1 - circa 1920
If the image, well the one I have, is continually maximised, the street sign says 'Shandy street'.

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!
