Established by 1690 as the Globe, the name Old Globe was in use by the 1830s to distinguish it from the New Globe which had opened nearby in 1820. Rebuilt in 1811 although much altered since. This pub closed in 2010 and is now used as a bookies. **

My Grandparents were George & Evaline Ford (nee Fitt) and they ran both the 'Rising Sun' and then 'The Old Globe' in Mile End/Bethnal Green area in the 1950/60's - (They also bought 'The Bell' in Leytonstone for one of their sons - a Lawrence Ford).

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!
