The Eagle, 182 East India Dock Road, Poplar E14

Poplar pub history index

The address in 1862 is at Pekin place, East India Dock road. The 1863 and 1875 license transfers list the address as the Eagle Tavern, Cotton street, as it is at the junction with Cotton Street. It was destroyed in 1945 by a V2 rocket with the loss of 20 lives.  The site has never been built on since. **

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!
