Kent's Directories of Businesses in London, 1759-1828 (ICPSR 8422)
Principal Investigator(s): Tilly, Charles
Published annually from 1732 until 1828, Kent's Directories provide the names, descriptions, and addresses of businesses in London. This collection is a transcription of the directories beginning with the 1759 edition. In addition to the name, type of business, and street address for each entry, the datasets contain the year of the listing, a "mobility code" indicating presence in the previous year's directory, and a set of geographical grid coordinates accurate to 100 meters. The directories are presented in three data files.
