The Sun, Ebury street - thanks Vincent
This London history site will only get better, and bigger. It currently uses pubs and their history, most are now closed, as landmarks. p>
Robsons 1832 directory index
This is the earliest street directory I have found so far which also includes pub history detail.
Great Ormond street
Great Ormond street is epitomised by the wonderful children's hospital of the same name and that of J. M. Barrie, known famously for his literary work, Peter Pan. He, anonymously, endowed the copyright and royalties of his book to the hospital in 1929.
The original hospital started life as the London Homeopathic Hospital, in Golden square, in about 1849. The first building in Great Ormond street was in 1859, and its history and many early pictures are on this brilliant site.

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!
