BARBER-SURGEONS ADMITTING A MEMBER: PRESENTING A PETITION AT THE GUILDHALL, LONDON

BARBER-SURGEONS ADMITTING A MEMBER: PRESENTING A PETITION AT THE GUILDHALL, LONDON

Inigo Jones built the existing Barber-Surgeons' Hall in Monkwell Street. E.G., but the Barbers' Guild is first mentioned in 1308, and they were united with the Surgeons in 1541. This partnership lasted for two hundred years, when the Barbers were left in possession of the Hall, of which the Court Room figures in the photograph (bottom). The Court of Common Council in London's Guildhall (top) was, with much else of this building, reconstructed by Sir Horace Jones in 1884. The photographs are from drawings by H. Melville and T. H. Shepherd.
