Early records give the address as 6 Temple Street, Whitefriars and at 1 Temple Street in 1881 census. The address alters between 1891 and 1895 to become the White Swan, 28 & 30 Tudor Street. ** Ex-Truman's. Trading by 1991 and known locally as the Mucky Duck but since closed and converted to alternative uses. Swan motifs can be still be seen between the ground floor pilasters. ***
White Swan, 28 - 30 Tudor Street, EC4

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!
