    A very unusual problem

    I am trying to find information on a shop called Evennett in Plaistow High Street.
    I have a picture from Pinterest of it.
    Into Google I put 'evennett plaistow' and one of the interesting results is the sixth entry which is

    ___plaistow. - Special Collections Online
    specialcollections.le.ac.uk › api › collection › download
    PDF
    PLAISTOW. 34:3 ... 66 Lanham James, shopkeepr 24 Lane :Mrs. Mary, laundry 7 Evennett ... 238 T~fts Simon, haberdasher High street, Plaistow road ~S Potter.____

    When I open the link, I get just what I am looking for, but how do I find out what Directory/book the result is from ?

    I have tried to find the source at Leicester University website without any success...

    Absolutely any suggestions are welcome...

    Looks like a street directory to me. The most famous directories were Kellys, but there are many others.

      You don't say what date, but Whites, Kelly and the Post Office directories all have entries for Evennett in the Plaistow/West Ham districts

        That's part of the problem. When I go to the Google link (unfortunately there is not a www.// link attached) all that comes up is the page of a directory, what I'm trying to find out is where that page comes from so that I can search elsewhere possibly in order to get a few more details of what it is...
