본문내용

In the medieval city, members of the various trades and professions tended to reside in particular streets and areas. For example, Candlewick Street was the focus of candle- and soap-making, Billiter (from Bell Yettre) Lane was the place where bell-makers practised their craft, and Lombard Street housed a colony of the Italian merchants who were the antecedents of today's bankers.
Grub Street was part of this general pattern. In medieval times it was the home of fletchers, bowyers, and the makers of bow-strings.
However, the development of gunpowder and artillery led to a decline in those trades, and a down-turn in Grub Street's fortunes. John Stow, one of London's v ery first antiquarians, wrote in 1598 that 'Grub Street [is] now little occupied; archery giving place to a number of bowling-alleys and dicing-houses, which in all places are increased, and too much frequented'.
