London historical street directory and pub history

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

Cabin, 79 Rochester Row, St John, Westminster

The South side of Rochester Row would match with New Rochester Row in 1851, when no licensed premises or beer retailers are listed. In 1856, there were two beer retailers at 45 Rochester Row and also at 28 Rochester Row. That at number 45 is closest to the church, and could be the Cabin, previously known as John Bulls Cabin.

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!
