London 1833 Royal Blue Book


Cat No.:   GB0346:

One of the most interesting directories, and a really beautiful and valuable book.

The Royal Blue Book is in two parts: a complete street by street listing (with house numbers) for central London in 1833, together with a complete alphabetical listing of all heads of household, their occupation where applicable, and address. It also includes Institutions, Societies, Public Offices, Hotels, Coffee-Houses and Taverns, Army and Navy Agents, and Bankers, followed by a section containing advertisements.

An 1831 street map of London has also been included on the CD. (The original book never did have a map, but this one is taken from the 1831 Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of England).
