St Pancras index
Address claters to 129 Parkway by 1944, previously at Gloucester gate. This is now a restaurant presided over by Gordon Ramsey (I believe the 2008 photo shows it as closed, so here's a picture showing it open). ***

This was my Grandfather's pub, when he lived at Stanhope Terrace in the late 1920's. Moving to Canada in 1930, he had met a Welshman at the York & Albany who convinced my grandfather to move his family to Canada and become a gentleman farmer. *+

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!
