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

City of Carlisle, 61 Royal Mint Street, Whitechapel E1

Whitechapel index

A stamped-terracotta inset on the gable gives a date of '1620' but the pub was evidently rebuilt in the 1880s. This pub closed after 1944 and before 1983 and is now a restaurant called 'Rosemary Lane' (2006), the old name for Royal Mint Street. At 61 Rosemary Lane in 1839 **

By 1851, Rosemary Lane was renamed Royal Mint Street, and the Carlisle Arms was known as the Blue Peter for some time.

In the 1920's - 1930s the City of Carlisle at 61 Royal Mint Street was known as the "Dublin". A date of 1881 is shown at the top of the building. In the electoral records it shows that J Costain the Licensed Victualler, was there between 1927 to 1930. *

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!
