Coopers' Hall,

Coopers' Hall,

This is a handsome brick edifice, standing on the west side of Basinghall-street; the hall was used for some years for the drawing of the state lottery tickets; the last drawing in this place was in October, 1826. In the windows of the hall were formerly several coats of arms in stained glass; the only shields remaining are those of the city and the company in the east windows. In the hall also were two tolerable portraits; the one of sir John Fleet, who was lord mayor in 1693, and the other of Henry Stroud, esq., who bequeathed to them 6,000l. for the building and endowment of a free-school and alms-houses, at Egham, in Surrey. Brayley's Hist. of London. Neither of these portraits are in the possession of the company at the present time. In the court-room, which is a handsome apartment, are several good paintings; among them is a three-quarter length of lady Alicia Knyvett, wife of H. Gybson, grocer of Ratcliffe, and afterwards of sir A. Knyvett, knt., and a half-length of the Rev.--Smith, chaplain to the company.
