Glasshouse Alley
   North out of Tudor Street at No. 28, in Farringdon Ward Without (P.O. Directory).
   First mention: O.S. 1875.
   Former name : "Paved alley" (Rocque, 1746-Boyle, 1799).
   In former times the Alley was further east, nearer to Whitefriars Street, as shown in Rocque, 1746-Elmes, 1831. This alley was, however, removed for the erection of a Glass manufactory and erected further west to give entrance to it.
   In P.C. 1732 the name is given to "Magpy Alley" further north, turning east and west.
   In Rocque's map the Glass House, giving name to the alley, was situated on its western side.
