Mile End Pubs history
At 14 Wentworth Place, Mile End Road in 1856; This pub was developed into a Music Hall in 1848 and rebuilt in 1884 as the Paragon Theatre of Varieties, after the original pub was destroyed by fire - the new premises could not really be considered a pub any more. By 1912 it had become the Mile End Empire and it is now the Genesis Cinema. **

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!
