Cheapside - Is a principal street, remarkable for the richness and beauty of its shops, which are always full of customers. It is one of the most frequented streets of the capital, as it leads to the bank, the royal exchange and the general post office.
In this street, on the right hand, is the church of St. Mary-le-bow, whose steeple is, perhaps, one of the most elegant in Europe. It is composed of the five orders of architecture, and is 235 feet in height.
The bishops are consecrated in this church.
