London historical street directory and pub history

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

George, 1 Goodmans Yard, Minories, Whitechapel

Whitechapel index

This pub lay at the intersection with Mansell Street, where it intersects with Goodmans Yard (under a spur from the main railway line at the time the pub was open, though that doesn't exist anymore). The Ordnance Survey maps I've looked at, which only show a pub at that location until the 1895 map, and after that (in the 1913, 1950s and 1960s maps), the layout of the streets changes and there doesn't seem to be any structure on that site. * The license transfers appear to refer to this as the George, Goodmans fields in 1849.

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Whitechapel, London  - in East London. The Whitechapel  East London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

The following entries are in this format:

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!
