XLIV.—THE COCK AND MAGPIE, No. 170 KING STREET
Old prints, drawings, Etc.
In the Council's Ms. collection are:
Hammersmith has long been famous for its old coaching inns and
taverns, and an interesting set of water-colour drawings of sixteen of them
by J. T. Wilson, in the middle of the last century, is preserved in the Coates
Collection. Few have remained to the present day. The Cock and Magpie
is a pleasant, long and low building with tiled roof, set well back from the
road, part of the forecourt being now occupied by the bar.
Water-colour drawing by J. T. Wilson (1870), in the Coates Collection.
