St Dunstan in West pub history Index

It was originally established in 1549 on the north side of Fleet Street at No. 190. In the 1600s the pub was called the Cock & Bottle. The original pub closed in 1886 and was demolished to accommodate a new branch of the Bank of England (itself now a pub). A replacement Cock Tavern was built in 1888 at No. 201 Fleet Street on the south side of the road.  **

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!
