Plan of the Six Alms-Houses on Snow-Hill of the Benefaction of Edmond Hammond ESQ
Surveyor: Cooper, J.
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
This plan depicts the almshouses belonging to the Haberdasher's Company, one of the City of London's livery companies. These were massive trade guilds, many of which had existed since medieval times. The date in pencil at the base of the plan ("June 10th 1805") is in the same hand as the measurements of the covered passage running from the bottom of the sheet.
