Paddington Bare

I have been watching in  absolute admiration the Channel 5 program about Paddington station and the behind the scenes work which keeps this area and the extremely busy London railway station running with 100,000 passengers every day. This adds to todays news, well yesterdays, that a new test train had caused major problems with the overhead power lines, ouch!

I have been looking at whether I cover this area properly with historical detail, particularly pub history. Here is a great example over 100 years which shows the onset of time on a small part of London. The New Red Lion, Harrow road, Paddington.

My 1832 street directory is almost complete – I say this every day! It really is. I will confirm when I have added the last pages for streets starting with G.
