Second or inner court of Merchant Taylors Hall
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
Traditionally, the Merchant Taylors have enforced the use of fair measures for the cutting of cloth in the city and at fairs. This hall was acquired by the company in the 14th century. It can be entered by narrow entrances on Threadneedle Street and Cornhill. This is the second courtyard. The image shows part of the medieval building in the centre and 17th- and 18th-century wings on either side.
