I continue to add entries to the London 1940 street directory, this will take some time. Here are a few more for S: I continue adding entries for all of the London site, either old pubs, or random updates. It’s what I do.
I have been busy tonight. I get fed up with sites like google telling me I cannot use a new domain name as I am creating too many new sites, maybe they are correct, but it still gets on my nerves. So, to get round this annoying interruption, I have moved a few sites about […]
I am always attempting to understand why I run all of these pub history sites. I think I am slowly getting a better idea. Whenever I wander in London, I look at the various modern buildings and streets, and start to visualize them as I see them in, for example, the John Rocques map of […]
I have little idea of whether people actually read this blog, but it’s a personal blog on the updates on a rather excellent pub history site I am building. In fact, I have been building this pub history site for a number of years, in fact, nearly twenty years. I am currently watching a film […]
I am placing a request to everybody. I have no idea whether anyone reads any of my blogs, or visits any of my sites, but hey ho. I am looking for any pictures of any railway stations, either underground, or over the top. I do not yet have the time to visit all of these. […]
Lots of London, but which part of this should I concentrate on? I have just started to build my London wiki site, and this will link heavily into my London pub history site, which is rather excellent in some ways; although I think the pages are rather boring. Another important facet is to make the […]
I have spent a few hours, actually, most of the day; adding links to an excellent list of 1829 taverns and coffee houses, hotels etc. It is all the early stuff which does not always correspond to a list of public houses. The years of research which have gone into the pub history site for […]
The NogoLondon.com site is slowly being updated alongside my pub history site with lots of tidying up of old out of date content in the first instance, plus a a few pictures. This is a quick update so that I can confirm I am adding categories as I should be.
As part of my new London 1940 street directory, I have just added Mile end road. This is always useful, as I can now extend the opening date for the Plough at 606 Mile end road to about 1940; and probably no later. I wonder if it was a victim of the London blitz? I […]
I have just completed the addition of a complete London street directory in 1832. It is not bad. It also links to the pubs on these street directories in at least 95% of cases, I am still missing a few early pubs, or I could not actually find them. I just ran a google search […]
