    Hi!
    What you’re doing here is great!

    I’m a writer based in Dublin. Trying to bring to life the story of a pair of music hall artistes who once lived for a while at 2 Wandsworth Road, around 1827- 28. Do you mnd me asking you where you got the Kellys’ directories, and if they’d cover that address or area?
    Good luck with expanding this project!

      Hi Yvonne,

      The story you are writing sounds really interesting, unfortunately my website doesn’t cover Wandsworth Road so I don’t have any information myself. Kelly’s directories only began in 1870 so they wouldn’t be of use either, I would suggest giving Lambeth Archives a call on 020 7926 6076 to see if they have any sources of information that would be helpful.

      Loads of luck with your writing!

      Chris
