Tail piece

 

It is surprising that Jewry Street has only one fire mark on its older buildings, as seen in St Peters Street and Kingsgate. The private horse-drawn hand operated fire engines attended only those buildings showing the Insurance Company firemark. Winchester replaced horses with a new motor engine in 1850. In 1984 the Sun Alliance Company intends reintroducing their firemark of 1710, for use on new buildings.
