My great grandfather ran this pub from 1908/9. and brought up his family on the site. During his time I am assured it was the Queens Arms. My grandmother having been married from there. Charles Bannister had worked for the brewery, I don't know the name, as a brewer and brewers traveller before becoming the tennant. After he retired we know he was heavily involved in showing Horse Drawn Brewers Dreys. *

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!
