London historical street directory and pub history

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

Crown, 78 Tufton Street, St John, Westminster

At 40 Tufton Street in 1869 and earlier. It is possible that the change of number occurred when Bowling Street was incorporated into Tufton Street, necessitating a re-numbering. The house stood on the SW corner of the crossing with Romney Street and a PH is marked there on the 1869 OS map.  *

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 1840 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
