Aldgate & Aldersgate Tavern Tokens - The issuing of currency was the Prerogative of the Monarch until Charles I got his head chopped off in 1649, and anyone was free to mint their own coins. It was practice taken up chiefly by taverns and coffee houses and, occasionally, others as well – such as the trader at the Bear in Aldgate, who was believed to have been a Cheesemonger.

St Bartholomew's Hospital Barts is the oldest hospital in the United Kingdom that still occupies its original site. It was founded in 1123 by Rahere, a favourite courtier of King Henry I. The Dissolution of the Monasteries did not affect the running of Barts as a hospital, but left it in a precarious position by removing its income. It was re-founded by King Henry VIII in December 1546, on the signing of an agreement granting the hospital to the City of London. photo by MissingIdentity221:
