London historical street directory and pub history

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

Watney Truman Public Houses, London and South East 1988 to 1990 - GHIJ

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in London.

The Grand Metropolitan chain purchased the Trumans and Watney chains in the early 1970s. This is a list of about 500 of their pubs in around 1988 to 1990 in London and the South East, just prior to Grand Metropolitan transfer to Charringtons. Links are back to the historical pubs site which shows a considerable amount of past history of the pubs and their past residents.

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!
