"The photograph shows the west side of Temple Bar as it was a short time before its demolition, shored up with timber to counteract the effects of the excavations for the New Law Courts...The Bar as we saw it till it was replaced by the 'Memorial' and its famous 'Griffin,' was built from Wren's designs in 1670...The statues on the west side, shown in our photograph, were of Charles I and Charles II in Roman habits."

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