One of the largest parks in the City of London, Postman's Park is a memorial to ordinary people who died saving the lives of others and might otherwise have been forgotten,

The park's name reflects its popularity amongst workers from the nearby GPO's headquarters after it was opened in 1880. It is located on the site of the former St Botolph's Aldersgate church.

The severe lack of burial space in London meant that graves would be frequently reused in London's burial grounds, and the difficulty of digging without disturbing existing graves led to bodies often simply being stacked on top of each other to fit the available space and covered with a layer of earth. Differing numbers of parishioners in each parish led to burial grounds being used at different rates, and by the mid 19th century, the ground level of the St Botolph's Aldersgate churchyard was 6 feet above that of the Christ Church Greyfriars burial ground, and 4 feet above that of the St Leonard, Foster Lane burial ground.

Postman's Park, built on the site of these former burial grounds, is significantly elevated above the streets which surround it.

Painter and sculptor George Frederic Watts and his second wife Mary Fraser Tytler had long been advocates of the idea of art as a force for social change. Watts had painted a series of portraits of those figures he considered to be a positive social influence, the Hall of Fame, which was donated to the National Portrait Gallery.

Watts had long considered a national monument to the bravery of ordinary people and in 1900, the park became the location for Watts's Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice, a memorial in the form of a loggia and long wall housing ceramic memorial tablets. At the time of its opening, only four of the planned 120 memorial tablets were in place, with a further nine tablets added during Watts's lifetime. Following Watts's death in 1904, his wife Mary Watts took over the management of the project and oversaw the installation of a further 35 memorial tablets in the following four years, as well as a small monument to Watts. However, disillusioned with the new tile manufacturer and with her time and money increasingly occupied by the running of the Watts Gallery, Mary Watts lost interest in the project and only five further tablets were added during her lifetime.

St Paul's

St Paul's is a London Underground station located in the City of London financial district which takes its name from the nearby St Paul's Cathedral.

The station was opened by the Central London Railway (CLR) on 30 July 1900 with the name Post Office, after the headquarters of the General Post Office on St Martin's Le Grand. The name Post Office was possibly chosen instead of the more obvious St Paul's to differentiate it from a South Eastern Railway (SER) station of that name (which today is called Blackfriars).

The station entrance was originally located on the north side of Newgate Street, on the west side of the junction with King Edward Street, but was moved to the east when the station was modernised in the 1930s with an underground ticket hall and escalators. A modern ventilation shaft in the centre of the traffic island at the junction indicates the location of the original lift shafts. When the SER station called St Paul's was renamed Blackfriars in 1937, the Underground station called Post Office took the name St Paul's, which it has kept ever since.

At the end of the 19th century, Newgate Street was a narrow road with some of its mediaeval character remaining. To reduce land purchase and compensation payments, the CLR routed its tunnels directly under public roads. At St Paul's the narrowness of the road required the tunnels to be placed one above the other with the westbound tunnel uppermost. The lifts originally operated to a level between the two platforms, with stairs up or down to the platforms as necessary. A high-level access passage way is visible at the lowest level leading to the disused lift lobby.

During the Second World War the electricity grid control room for London and Southeast England was housed below ground in the lift shaft.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
