The interior of the Temple Bar in Walworth Road has my grandfather, Henry James ROBINS, in hat, with my father, Harry ROBINS

The interior of the Temple Bar in Walworth Road has my grandfather, Henry James ROBINS, in hat, with my father, Harry ROBINS. Dad was born 1900, & I estimate circa 1919 for this photograph. My father was manager there for about 3 years, but the hotel trade was not for him. At 30 he became a London City Missionary - quite a change. **

My ROBINS family were in the hotel trade in the Walworth Road, Old Kent Road area, 1900 to 1940s. My father was born at The Dun Cow, 1900, and by the 1901 census they were at the Temple Bar, which was in the family until about the end of World War 2. Also in their hands 1930s was the Rock. **

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!
