Cornhill was the highest hill in the City of London and also the site of a Roman basilica. Lombard Street was the banking centre of London since Lombard merchants from North Italy settled here in the 12th century. To the left is the entrance portico of the mansion house. It was the official house of the Lord Mayor of London. It was designed by George Dance: Clerk of the City Works, and built between 1739-52, although it was later altered.
