[Plan of property on Cateaton Street]
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
This plan comes from a rent book belonging to the Mercers' Company. One of the most prominent city livery companies, the Mercers were merchants dealing primarily in textiles. Having amassed great wealth, they came to own property in the City of London, which they leased to tenants. The names of the tenants and neighbours are recorded. This is a property on Cateaton Street consisting of warehouse space and a compting (counting) house with a skylight over it.
