London historical street directory and pub history

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

Globe, 22 Fish Street Hill, St Magnes Martyr, City of London

The Globe & the Swan Tavern are easy to get confused, as they share the same address in different periods of time. In 1869, the address of the Globe is actually at Globe Court, 22 Fish Street Hill, but by 1891 at 22 1/2 Fish Street Hill. The 1901 census entry is at 4 Globe Court. This pub was demolished in around 1914. **

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!
