Monument to John Stow, author of the Survey of London in 1598, at Saint Andrew Undershaft, Leadenhall Street, London. In 1905 the Merchant Taylors' Company replaced this marble monument which was erected by his wife. Stow was buried here in 1605 and a 'Quill Pen' ceremony, attended by the Lord Mayor, takes place annually, on 5 April, to commemorate him.
