Object history note

This object was part of the John Edmund Gardner collection of topographical prints and drawings of London. After Gardner's death the collection passed to his son John Starkie, but was sold to Edward Coates MP in 1910. The collection was sold again in 1923 after Coates' death, and was split between various institutions and private collectors. The portion connected with Bishopsgate was bought by Baring Brothers & Co. and donated to the Bethnal Green Museum.
