Notes An engraving of Merchant Taylors School and St. Paul's School from William Maitland's The History of London from its foundation by the Romans to the present time. Both schools were originally located in the City of London: the Merchant Taylor School was in Suffolk lane until 1872 and St. Paul's School across from St. Paul's Cathedral until 1872 when it moved to Hammersmith.

Benjamin Cole (1697-1783) was an English printmaker, who engraved, printed and sold prints from his shop at St Paul's Church in London. He also produced a wide variety of book illustrations, and is not to be confused with the near contemporary map engraver of the same name (1667-1729), who was active in Oxford.
