Comments:

by Geoffrey Godden:
OLD BISHOPSGATE
This is one of the London views first issued at the 1885 International Inventions Exhibition. It is found mounted singly or in the multi-subject mount, where the title is given as 'Ye Olde Bishopsgate'; but in the individually mounted examples which I have examined, the title is given simply as 'Old Bishopsgate', and as such it was originally sold at 6d.

Other comments:
This silk was mounted by Grant with various printed titles.
The title above is YE OLDE BISHOPSGATE.
It is also printed with the title OLD BISHOPSGATE (recorded as gt516).
It also appears as a composite silk with title INTERNATIONAL INVENTIONS EXHIBITION, LONDON, 1885 (recorded as gt4),
and again as YE CHURCH OF ALL HALLOWS with YE OLDE BISHOPSGATE (recorded as gt10).
