My great grandfather William Albert Barnes was the licensee here in 1911/1912. He then moved onto the Selhurst Arms at 38 Selhurst Park Road in South Norwood where he died in 1913. He married into the Rose family in 1896 who were publicans in the East End. *

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!
