My great grandparents were called Marks, Louis and Hannah at 67 St. Martins Lane. The 1901 census entry for the address, which goes over onto a second page shows numbers listed in St.Martin's Lane as: 64, 65, 66, 67, 69. There is no 68. This is an error on the part of the enumerator ***

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!
