Plan of property on Cateaton Street
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
This plan belonged to the Mercer's Company, a prominent city livery company that dealt primarily in textiles. Having amassed great wealth, it set about owning property in the City of London, which it then leased to tenants. The names of the tenants and neighbours are recorded on the plan.
This is a group of houses in Mumfords Court on Cateaton Street. "Mercers" is written as a title for the plan, reflecting the company's ownership. A list of measurements has been attatched by sealing wax to the plan.
