The Angel
   Langbourn Ward extends along Lombard Street to the sign of the Angell almost to the corner by the Stockes market (S. 205).
   No later reference.
   This popular sign was originally adopted in commemoration of the Salutation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the angel was represented with the scroll in his hands, containing the words, " Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum."
