"Cloth Fair derives its name from the famous Bartholomew Fair, held within the precinct of the Priory."

In 'Photographs of Old London' Alfred Marks explains that these photographs of Saint Bartholomew The Great aim "...to show the picturesque manner in which ecclesiastical and civil buildings are, as it were, dovetailed together in this quaintest nook of Old London."
