The transcription of Trade Directories and census; plus a brief synopsis of the census through about a 100 year time span for the Poplar High Street area. It gets quite interesting as the years roll on, and we start to see motor vehicles and wireless mentioned in the 20th century.

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!
