"College Street (formerly Elbow Lane) and College Hill take their name from a foundation of Whittington, famous in City annals as having been four times Lord Mayor and thrice buried; still more famous in legend as the fortunate owner of a cat. The Church shown in the background...is St. Michael's, Paternoster Royal."

The doorway of Innholders' Hall is to the left of the photograph.
