UK Pub history research and London historical street directory

Search the historical London street directory and pub history site by surname, street or pub name; you will find many obscure early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London and early parish and licensing records on this site. Most records are before 1944 plus some modern detail, and lots of pictures.

Cock, 45 Whitechapel High Street, Whitechapel E1

Whitechapel pub history index

The pub also had an entrance from Commercial Road, and I have seen the address listed as 9 Commercial Road (e.g. in 1923). It is long closed. This pub was demolished in 2008.  **
