A plaque that could reveal all about a homes wealth

Location: Mount Terrace

Description: Behind the London Hospital in Whitechapel is a small road containing 12 houses.

On the outside wall on 9 of the houses is a fire plaque. This is a plaque made of copper or lead which signified to the fire brigade that the tenant was insured if the house caught fire.

Each insurance company had its own fire brigade and from 1680 until 1880 over 150 insurance companies had their own marks.
