London historical street directory and pub history

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

Victory, 272 Devonshire Street, Mile End

Mile End Pubs history

The name is given in the 1871 census, in a note at the end of East Street/Bancroft Road, which intersects, stating that the entry for the Victory beer shop at the corner of Devonshire Street is given in the adjoining district, but the census records for that district cut off short of the address (so they may be missing).  *

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!
