LII.—TABLET ON No. 77, CHEYNE WALK.

No. 77 is a modern house standing at the eastern corner of Danvers Street and Cheyne Walk. Faulkner (fn. 1) tells us that in 1742 it was a publichouse, called the "Bell," and had a sign suspended across the street. A stone inscribed with the words:—

This is
DANVERS Street
begun in ye year
1696 by
Benjamin Stallwood

was preserved and built into the new wall. It is now set in a panel architecturally treated with a frame surmounted by a pediment, on brackets, and bears the later inscription beneath:

THIS HOUSE REBUILT BY
J. COOPER.

In the Council's ms. collection are:—
