Broad Street Buildings
   South out of Liverpool Street, at Nos. 2, 5, and 11 (P.O. Directory).
   Formerly these buildings formed the northern continuation of New Broad Street (q.v.) (O.S. 1880), but earlier still the name was given to a street running east and west from Broad Street to Broker Row (Rocque, 1746-Elmes, 1831), on the site of the booking offices of the present Broad Street Station.
   In Strype's map, 1720, the buildings had not been erected, and the site was occupied by numerous small alleys, such as Round Court (q.v.), etc.
   A stone preserved in the Guildhall Museum bears the inscription "Broad Street Buildings," 1737, probably the date of erection of the street shown in Rocque, 1746, above mentioned.
