Plaque: Wynkyn de Worde

Inscription

Wynkyn de Worde, father of Fleet Street, first set up his press by Shoe Lane near this Hall circa 1500.

The sun-burst was part of de Worde's printer's device - printed at the front or back of all books to identify the printer. Not sure we would describe Shoe Lane as being "near this Hall".
