(11) . Jewry Street, North end. In 1861 a considerable stretch of the wall on the East side of Jewry Street, immediately South of Aldgate was uncovered in the rebuilding of the premises of Messrs Moses.

A drawing of this stretch of wall is preserved at the Society of Antiquaries, Red Portfolio, London, I, but contains obvious inaccuracies.
