St Swithin index

A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in  St Swithin London Stone parish, City of London. The St Swithin London Stone, City of London Public House Trade Directory uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

Being partly built of stone, this was one of the very few pubs to survive the Great Fire of London in 1666. The address of this pub was formerly given as 20 Great Bush Lane. **

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!
