These two rare plans depict the building views from street level along Bishopsgate Street Without and Newington Causeway. Bishopsgate Street, one of the original Roman roads in the city of London, derived its name from an ancient gate in the city walls adorned with statues of bishops of London. Newington Causeway is located in central London. Each plan includes views of the buildings on both sides of the street, with many proprietors named, in addition to a bird's-eye plan of the area and a vignette with a close-up of one merchant's building.
