London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Golden Eagle, 56 Cleveland Street, Mile End E1

Mile End Pubs history

The pub is named on the 1948 Ordnance Survey Map and in the 1983 CAMRA Pig's Ear directory and the 1988 Watney Truman list.  The address is at 56 Cleveland Way by 1944, due to street renaming. * It was renamed the Peasantís Revolt in 1991. The pub closed in around 2000 and was demolished. **

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!
