The Corporation of the City of London
In a house near this site was published in 1702 the Daily Courant, first London daily newspaper.

Site: Janina Gehlau (4 memorials)

EC4, Ludgate Hill

Number 12, the eastern half of the building on this concave corner is, 2014, occupied by Leon, but it used to be the pub The King Lud.  Built in 1870, the Lost Pubs Project has a picture of it in 1969.  These two images of King Lud seem to be original to the building so we imagine it was built and opened as a pub with that name, prompted by the proximity of the supposed site of the old Lud Gate.

The Daily Courant plaque is to the lower right of the photograph.
