London historical street directory and pub history

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

Feathers, 36 Tudor Street / 22 Temple Street, Whitefriars EC4

Whitefriars index

Ex-Watney Combe Reid. Rebuilt in the late 19th century and again in 1974. Recently (2018) rebranded as a branch of Jamie's wine bars.  *** Noted as Temple Rest, 36 Tudor street in the 1911 census; this makes sense as it is referred to as Temple Restaurant between 1899 and 1944, for example.

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

The Feathers early address according to trade directories is the Feathers, 22 Temple Street; but at the same time it is listed (un-named) in the 1851 and 1861 census at 1 Temple Lane. This pub was rebuilt in 1895 and in around this year it also took the alternative name of Temple Restaurant. It was again rebuilt in 1974 and is now called the Witness Box. **

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!
