London Robsons Street Directory in 1832 - Wych street, Strand

Robsons 1832 directory index

This is the earliest street directory I have found so far which also includes pub history detail.

Wych street is near the bottom of Drury lane, and intersects with Newcastle street in the 1895 mapping. It is later demolished for the building of Kingsway.
