HISTORICAL NOTE: one of the first buildings to be erected in
Southwark Street, forming an excellent 'gateway' to the newly
opened commercial thoroughfare laid out by the Metropolitan
Board of Works to link London Bridge and Blackfriars.
Southwark Street was the Board's first town-planning
initiative, and was opened along its entire length in 1864.
No.3 appears in a view of the street which was published in
the "Illustrated London News" for 18 February 1865.
