Girdlers' Hall

Categories: Liveries & Guilds

First built in 1431, destroyed by the Great Fire in 1666, rebuilt in 1681, and again destroyed by enemy action in 1940.

The picture shows the pillared portico of the old Girdlers' Hall, 1830.

Girdlers are, unsurprisingly, makers of belts and girdles.
