Mile End Pubs history
It was re-built after World War II as the Royal Duchess, on a nearby site given the address 543 Commercial Road and opened Monday 16th September 1963 replacing a house of the same name next door. I'm not sure if this name was in use before the war - it stands opposite the Royal Duke. ** Closed 2015 and demolished c. 2017 for housing. ***

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!
