I’m in the process of trying to find out more about my Aunt and Uncle –  I recall visiting their pub near to Tooley Street which I understood to be the ‘Bricklayers Arms’.  From the BT Phone books I located them [G R Horlock] as a Licensed Victualler at 10 Gainsford Street, SE1, but no name of any public house. The 1891 Census has 10 Gainsford Street as a  Beer House listed as the ‘Bricklayers Arms’. Today, Southwark Council have the ‘Dean Swift’ at 10 Gainsford Street but as its on a corner, the ‘Dean Swift’ use 32 Lafone Street  as the address. ***

1948/G R Horlock/Licensed Victualler/../../Bt Telephone Directory [HOP 1533] ***

1950/G R Horlock/Licensed Victualler/../../Bt Telephone Directory [HOP 1533] ***

1953/G R Horlock/Licensed Victualler/../../Bt Telephone Directory [HOP 1533] ***

1956/G R Horlock/Licensed Victualler/../../Bt Telephone Directory [HOP 1533] ***

1962/G R Horlock/Licensed Victualler/../../Bt Telephone Directory [HOP 1533] ***

By 1964, G R Horlock is at the Telegraph, 51 Church Street, Maryland, near Stratford.

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!
