"To those who know the quiet retirement and old-world air of Barnard's Inn, it will seem in accordance with the fitness of things that the last of the alchemists should have pursued here his search for elixir. This was Peter Woulfe, a Fellow of the Royal Society, who died in 1805."

Letterpress by Alfred Marks from 'Photographs of Old London'.
