EARLY Lon­don street names had of­ten a prac­ti­cal char­ac­ter. Trades and call­ings clus­tered to­gether in some favourable quar­ter. Such names as Fish Street, Iron­mon­ger Lane and the Vin­try tell their own story; so also does Old Jewry. There are still old clothes deal­ers in Hounds­ditch, but we look no longer for bak­ers in Bread Street nor for lime-burn­ers in Lime Street. Lom­bard Street is still to­day, as it has been for over seven cen­turies, the cho­sen home of bankers.
