  • A monument in the form of the Dragon (symbol of London) is set in the middle of the street, opposite the Palace of Justice on the border of two districts. If you go to the Strand-by pass. Monument (the shape of the Dragon) looks very modern, though installed over 100 years ago. Probably at the end of the 19th century it was very innovative.

  • In 1880 Horace Jones, a City of London architect, was commissioned to design a memorial to mark Temple Bar. One outstanding element of this is an elaborate pedestal in a Neo-Renaissance style. This serves as the base for a sculpture by Charles Bell Birch commonly called "The Griffin", which is in fact a dragon, This actually "marks" the entrance to the City, and bears the heraldic crest of the Corporation of the City of London. I love this piece of sculpture and the photo I have uploaded to Google Maps attempts to provide the imagery to show how fantastic it is. Love it and please go see it if you get the time.
  • Marks the boundaries of the City of London
  • Cool. Historical. A bit odd.
  • And we are in the City.
