Old Houses In Gray's Inn Lane
Photographer: Dixon, Henry (1820 - 1892), A & J Bool
Medium: Photographic print
"Old houses in Gray's Inn Lane, opposite to the entrance to Verulam Buildings in Gray's Inn. The houses were demolished soon after the taking of this photograph, for the purpose of widening the street. One of the group of houses bore on a carved corbel a date towards the close of the sixteenth century. These houses must have been on the verge of London in this part for more than a century; maps of the beginning of the eighteenth century showing very little extension of building north of Liquorpond Street."
