Just to add, Moss Alley is still there in my 1937 Authentic Map Directory of London & Suburbs.

Would you like a copy?

Patricia

Thanks for that, surely it was built before that though as I have ancestors living there in the mid 1800s and it was also on that 1790 map?

And yes I would like a copy Dawn, if you could post or pm it, thanks

Sorry to butt in but I think it is now called New Globe Walk.  It is next to Bear Alley which if you look at the next page East of very old map you will see was there then.

Or perhaps not looking at the above maps.  Anyway its near the Globe Theatre

Aren't old maps interesting.

What lovely maps Dawn,  Lucky you owning them. :D

I think you are right Sylviaann, it does look as if the Globe has been developed on the site of Moss Alley.

Anthony the only thing I can think of is the last known addition to Moss Alley was built in 1881. I have used the site before and if it has definite records it will show more than one date when a street was built.

Looks like a good site for a Rootschat meet 2007  :D

Great maps Dawn, presume then if Moss Alley was still on the 1937 map then the Lufwaffe were probably responsible for its demise. I shall look through the Blitz Then and Now volumes to see if it gets a mention at all.

What a great idea a Rootschat meet at the Globe Theatre  :D

I love looking at old maps and find them fascinating, and current ones as well.
