    Hello Tom. No Buki or variant in the description on casebook. That is, none living off a thoroughfare of the ratcliff highway. The search is 80 percent over if you have a street for some of these others it could really help. Dave

      I think you'll find there are several sections containing essentially the same information arranged in different ways - for example, a street directory arranged by address, a commercial directory arranged by surname (with a separate court directory for the higher classes) and a trades directory arranged by business type.

      Unfortunately most ordinary people weren't listed in these directories, though - only those with their own businesses.

        hanks for the heads up. I still have not leafed through one completely. Their condition is better, but still fragile. Any suggestions could be useful. Dave

          If it helps, you can browse through the 1882 and 1895 P. O. Directories of London on the following site, to see how they're arranged:

                    Dave, just out of curiosity, is there anything listed for Windsor Street E1? Thanks.

                    p.s. Thanks very much for the Thames torso finds maps that you sent me, my email is playing up again at present so I can't email to say thanks.

                      for Nats

                      The heading says "Dunster court, but it was a subsection of the minories entry. I have looked on my bacon atlas, and I can find no such hole in the wall. Dave

                        This is off Mincing Lane, I think, not the Minories.

                            As I am not so quick with the names of places, and in light of the directory not using the nomenclature E1, here is the only entry for "Windsor St. There is also a "Windsor court in Whitechapel. Dave (1888)
