The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time. Why not join us, there is no cost in getting involved, and any contribution to pub history is welcome. To contact the pubs history site, please email deadpubs<
Hanbury Street, East London.
The Jack the Ripper story is exceedingly well documented by many at casebook.org - what a brilliant site. There are many amateur sleuths, and a whole host of detectives to the highest ranks on this site.
I just like to recreate some facts, in a simple format, e.g. a timeline of Hanbury Street; and its residents, and its Pubs in London.
A good start is to look at the Trade Directories and census available for these years. Starting with 1841, through the 1850's to about 1944 a hundred years later. Referring back to Hanbury Street - see map.
I have current access to Trade Directories of 1882 and later that show Hanbury Street as a rather long road. About 25 years earlier  it is split into four separate sections, and entirely different road names.
These four roads are : -
Browns Lane [2-26 Hanbury Street & 3 - 39 Hanbury Street]
Montague Street (aka New Montague Street)
Wells Street / Preston Street
The historical directory listing will use these as a base.
