This London history site will only get better, and bigger. It currently uses pubs and their history, most are now closed, as landmarks. p>

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 1840 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
