✹ About Monday 16 October 1665 Robert Harneis on 17 Oct 2018 • Link "the Still YardeSteelyardCovering four acres, the Steelyard, on the bank of the River Thames, included wharves, warehouses, private houses, etc. It is now covered by Cannon Street station." The Still Yard was still at that time the head quarters of the once all powerful Hanseatic League in London and England. The Still refers, if my memory serves me right, to the large steel beam weighing machine there. At that time the League, an ancient version of the European Common Market, was on its last legs having once been powerful enough to order English Kings about and finance their wars. They themselves even made war on Edward IV and raided East Anglia when he got too uppity. Brexiteers beware.
