It was a street that existed in the City of London up to the early part of the twentieth century. It ran from the east end of Great Tower Street to 53 Lower Thames Street, opposite the Custom House. Edward Hatton, in his A New View of London (1708) wrote "Here is a very great market for wheat and other sorts of grain, brought hither from the neighbouring counties". In the early twentieth century, the firm of H.C. König & Co. had their offices there from where they distributed their Konig's Westphalian Gin.
