London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

Prince Of Wales , 137 Bridge Street, Mile End E3

Mile End Pubs history

The 1884 directory and many earlier refer this as the Prince of Wales, Regent street. The 1882 directory confirms this is at the junction with Maplin street which is the new name for Regent street at some time after 1871. Bridge Street is renamed Solebay Street between 1938 and 1944, the new address becoming 137 Solebay Street.

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Mile End, East London  - in East London. The Mile End East London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

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!
