Can any of your correspondents say when the last of such existed, that is, in any prominent instance or locality? I well remember such a one standing at the kerb-stone in front of that respectable old hostelry the "George and Blue Boar," Holbom; to the best of my belief in 1807, else 1808, I being then only as old as the century, but acquainted with London by early visits; also that it had been removed in 1812 — precisely — and I never saw a similar instance.
