This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Day'. The plan's title features at top centre, flanked by the heraldic arms of Joseph Hankey, Alderman for  Langbourn ward, and Charles Asgill, Alderman for Candlewick ward. View of All Hallows Lombard Street church appear at top left, with a view of St Clement's church at bottom centre and St Mary's church at bottom right. The church building shown at bottom left is in fact St Olave Hart Street not All Hallows Staining. 

Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
