I am no longer on twitter or facebook. I now have lots of time for London history, and London directories are receiving daily updates!
These pages about Whitechapel are aimed at Whitechapel High Street and Whitechapel Road over the last two hundred years. They contain Trade Directory Listings, from the Post Office, Kelly & Pigots directories to show the inhabitants listed over this period of time.
With particular interest are the road and numbering changes that occur over time; and the changes in occupations; the addition of railway stations etc; plus importantly these page link to the Public Houses, Taverns and Beer Houses that existed along this busy thoroughfares.
The Directories transcribed are from 1841, 1851, 1856, 1882 & 1934. More to follow:
