Prince of Wales, 108 Duckett Street / 14 Waley street E1

Mile End Pubs history

The address is listed as 41 Edward Street in the 1871 census and earlier and also up until the 1876 directory, prior to street renaming. It is named as the Prince of Wales in the 1871 census and on a 1970s Ordnance Survey map, but the name is given as the British Flag in the 1861 census. * The address is at 108 Duckett street until at least 1938, being at the junction with Waley street. The more modern address is at 14 Waley street, and was demolished in 2001.

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!
