1746 map and street name index: Guys, were the configurations of Ax yard and King st. (which ran North-South (?) past Whitehall into London) different in 1660 than they were in this marvelous mid-18th century map? Because if so, then direction challenged me doesn't see a South-West corner of Ax yard... http://www.motco.com/Map/81002/SeriesSearchPlatesFulla.asp?mode=query&title=Ax+Yard&artist=384&other=361&x=11&y=11 I've got the index URL in my tool bar, so I switch to the map when Sam describes his London peregrinations & pub crawls: http://www.motco.com/Map/81002/seriesa-left-frame_border.asp

"southwest corner of Axe Yard": I'm assuming this means the far left end of the street, on the south side.
