    UK Pub history research and London historical street directory

    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London. This search engine is not brilliant, try address searches in the main google search to get better results. Searches on people names do appear to work, I think. Let me know!

    The Garrick, 70 Leman Street, Whitechapel E1

    Whitechapel index

    At 35 Leman Street in 1869 and earlier; This pub was attached to the Garrick Theatre which was built in 1831 and demolished in 1891.  The pub probably also dates from 1831, although has been re-built at some point. Re-named Mr Pickwick's before 1983. In 2010, this pub was renamed from Mr Pickwick’s to the Oliver Conquest – a name chosen to reflect that of the most famous former landlord. **
