London pub history & 1940 street directory & more

It’s late. I have just spent the day adding the 1940 street directory for Commercial road, east London and others. There are a surprisingly few pubs in this street, but not a problem.

Both sites, the London street directory site, and the pub history site now look a little different due to style changes, a grey background, and also a change in the advertising provider.

I then started to look at individual pubs, well at Shoreditch pubs, and started with the Acorn. I thought it about time to look at individual pages on the site, and make them  ore attractive, rather than just a plethora of facts / landlord lists. I have added the 1939 Electoral register to this page for Thomas John Bryant and a host of early history for a 30 year long licensee of the Acorn, with links to the Queens Arms – I will leave you to read the entirety of the story, for what it’s worth!

I did find the Hackney road listing in 1940 incredibly useful when comparing addresses in this road, and in particularly the Queens Arms. A damned blooming useful listing although I say it myself!

All my changes take a lot of time due to the volume of pubs listed, which is most of them!
