London historical street directory and pub history

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

West Ham Gas Works

A walk along the canal that borders the District Line from Upminster to Hammersmith, via West Ham and Mile End etc. It is the green line on the London Tube map.

I am not a clever photographer,  but I love this picture - the old and the new, water and electricity and gas. Technology from a grassy bank.

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!
