My great grandmother's first husband, Richard Bailey, became the licensee in 1865, taking over from Joseph Raff. When Richard died on 30 May 1866, his widow, my great grandmother, Clara Olive Bailey(later Gamon), briefly became the licensee until Henry De Ritter took over, (as reported in the 'East London Observer', 7 July 1866). *

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!
