Victorian London - Districts - Streets - Crooked Lane

CROOKED LANE, CANNON STREET, CITY, "so called of the crooked windings thereof."* (*Stow, p.81). Part of the lane was taken down to make the approach to new London Bridge. It has long been, and is still, famous for its bird-cage and fishing-tackle shops.

Peter Cunningham, Hand-Book of London, 1850
