Godden does not mention this silk.

Other comments:
The more popular title of Ye Views of Olde London [gt36 on this site] is discussed at length by Godden. The multi-silk version above, whilst it has the same individual titles printed on the card mount, three of the actual silks are different.

Firstly, the Coat Of Arms in the silk above are actually those of Edinburgh, not London.

The woven silk to the left is titled Ye Church of All Hallows. In this silk, the building is to the right of the weaving, with the two people to the left of the building. In Ye Views of Olde London, this silk is a mirror image, with the building to the left of the weaving, and the people to the right of the building.

The woven silk to the right is titled Ye Olde Bishopsgate. In this silk, the building roofline slopes down from left to right, with the two people to the left of the doorway. In Ye Views of Olde Londo, this silk is a mirror image, with the roofline sloping upwards, and the two people to the right of the doorway.

The central silk is titled Ye Olde London Streete, and is identical to Ye Views of Olde London.

The three individual street scene silks were also issued by Grant as individually mounted pictures, being:

gt799 - Ye Church of All Hallows (building to right of weaving)
gt810 - Ye Olde London Streete
gt805 - Ye Olde Bishopsgate (roofline sloping down from left to right)
