I, pl. 9 NOTES: Billingsgate fishmarket was originally situated in the streets around Billingsgate Wharf and was officially established as a fishmarket by an Act of Parliament in 1698. The City Corporation moved the market off the streets in 1849 to a new building on the waterfront. This was demolished and replaced by an arcaded market hall in 1875.

II, pl. 50 NOTES: The market takes its name from a mansion built in stone with a lead roof belonging to the Neville family built on this site in the early 14th century. Both the market and the mansion were destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. The rebuilt market, fashioned around three courtyards, was replaced in 1881 by buildings designed by Horace Jones.
