Long Description:
The marker is probably a copy as the building, to which it is attached, was destroyed by enemy bombing during the Second World War. The marker reads "1886 S C S".

"S C S" is for the parish of St Stephen Coleman Street the church.

"St Stephen's Church, Coleman Street was a church in the City of London, at the corner of Coleman Street and what is now Gresham Street, first mentioned in the 13th century. Destroyed in the Great Fire of London of 1666, it was rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The church was destroyed again, by bombing in 1940, and was never rebuilt."
