London coffee houses and taverns

London coffee houses and taverns

London18 is about London in the 1800s - and rivers

This site is about London history, and connects to my many pub history sites and historical street directories.

Very recently I found a number of rather excellent books online which are relevant to London Old & New and written in the 1875 to 1878 period. These books are available for anyone to use the text, i.e. completely out of copyright.
A little more research found that I could download my own copy of each volume, and also that the British History site has beaten me to this - that's OK.

My particular interests are in the taverns of London, plus other bits. I will therefore use this site to do the other bits I am interested, particularly anything to do with the Thames, the River Fleet etc. and other river systems which existed and are now 'probably' part of the sewer system.

Going underground ........

The River fleet, its history as I comprehend it ..

So, here we go ...

What I am now attempting to achieve is the addition of all early coffee houses in London. 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!
