Southwark St Olave pub history index
The address is 242 Bermondsey Street before 1851, prior to street renumbering. This is also named simply as The Grapes in the 1841 Directory and in older records. There was an "Old Bunch of Grapes" on Bermondsey St as well, though that falls in the Bermondsey parish rather than Southwark St Olave. *

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!
