Leaden Hall Street.

At the coronation of Charles II, the first triumphal arch erected in Leadenhall Street, near Lime Street, for the king to pass under on his way from the Tower to Westminster, is described in Ogilby's contemporary account of the ceremony as having in its centre a figure of Charles, royally attired, behind whom, 'on a large table, is deciphered the Royal Oak bearing crowns and sceptres instead of acorns; amongst the leaves, in a label

"----------- Miraturque novas
Frondes et non sua poma."
(----------- Leaves unknown
Admiring, and strange apples not her own.)

(Book of Days.)
