The 1849 and 1866 license transfers refer to the Red Lion, Hunt street. The address is listed as the Red Lion at 34 Spicer Street in 1884 and earlier, prior to street renaming. The pub appears to have been renamed the Old Red Lion when the street was renamed, and address changes to 22 Buxton Street. *

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!
