London historical street directory and pub history

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

Victoria, 24 King Street, Snowhill, St Sepulchre

The earlier address is at 25 King Street. In the 1853 directory, the Queen Victoria is at 25 King street. This address appears to be the Black Bull, 25 King street in 1832 and 1843, then the Queen Victoria at 25 King Street, in 1856 and earlier. There is then a period of time in which the directory does not list the Victoria Hotel or the Newmarket until at least 1864

In the 1911 census the address of the Victoria is 24a King street, with the Newmarket next door at 26 King 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!
