London historical street directory and pub history

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

Railway Tavern, 2 Railway Place, St Katherine Coleman

St Katherine Coleman index

The address is sometimes also given as 2 Railway Place, and as 5 New London Street in the 1881 census, but it is the same premises, listed consistently in directories as 2 London Street (which in modern times is still the site of a pub, at 2 New London Street). It is a separate pub from the Blackwall Railway Tavern/Hotel at 7 London Street, even though Frederick Bishop is listed as proprietor of both in the 1890s. Census records appear variously in All Hallows Staining, St Katherine Coleman and St Olave Hart Street. *

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!
