Mile End Pubs history
It is not named on any directories or census returns I've looked at, but is clearly named on the 1947 Ordnance Survey map. * Duckett street is earlier named Edward street up until about 1876, but this property is not listed in 1877 and there are no matching beer retailers listed in Edward street prior to this.

It would appear that Thomas Radford owned The Horn of Plenty; plus 8 & 10 Duckett Street as listed in the Property ownership record of electors in 1905 albeit as mentioned earlier Thomas died in 1882! ***
The reason I have mentioned this is because I have a copy of a solicitors letter dated 1914 in respect of inheritance from Adah’s estate, this letter mentions “The Black Horse and other premises Duckett Street, Stepney”. As I have not found any mention of a pub called The Black Horse in Duckett Street, maybe this was number 10?

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!
