In 'Photographs of Old London' Alfred Marks' letterpress accompanying this photograph of the Inn Yard quotes from a writer in the Athenaeum of May 20th, 1876, "Despite the confusion, the dirt, and the decay, he who stands in the yard of this ancient Inn may get an excellent idea of what it was like in the days of its prosperity, when not only travellers in coach or saddle rode into or out of this yard, but poor players and mountebacks set up their stage for the entertainment of spectators, who hung over the galleries or looked on from their rooms - a name by which the boxes of the theatre were first known."
