Mile End Pubs history
By 1983, this pub was trading as the Horn of Plenty, but I have a note that it was “formerly called the Cornucopia”. It had been rebuilt at some point between 1968 and 1974 as part of the development of the Eric Estate and might have been renamed at this time. In more recent years, the pub was renamed several more times, and closed in 2010 for conversion to restaurant use. **

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!
