London historical street directory and pub history

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

Swan Tavern, 42 King William Street, St Magnes Martyr, City of London

Listed in St Margaret New Fish Street in 1861 census. Clearly there is some overlap between the records of the Swan Tavern & the Swan Tavern Tap, if indeed they were separate pubs.
I think it is likely that there was one Swan and a separate Globe. King William Street did not exist before 1820. The address in the 1911 census is at 42 King William Street & 24 Fish Street Hill. **

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!
