London historical street directory and pub history

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

George & Dragon, 38 Wardour Street, St Annes, Soho

This pub originally existed as the George, in Gerrard Street. It was rebuilt as the George & Dragon at its present site. The pub remained open until at least 1966. An earlier form of the address for this pub was 18 Princeís Street (Princeís Street later became the southern end of Wardour Street). ** The address is 18 Princes Street prior to 1878, in which year the street was renamed. Since the construction of Shaftesbury Avenue in the mid-1880s, the address has also been given as 64 Shaftesbury Avenue. ***

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!
