   South out of Cornhill at Nos. 23 and 28 to Lombard Street, with a passage east to Birchin Lane (P.O. Directory). In Cornhill and Langbourne Wards.
   First mention: Lockie, 1810.
   Former name : "Exchange Alley" (1666, Leake).
   Garaway's, Jonathan's, and other celebrated coffee houses were in this Alley.
   After the Fire, it was enlarged and rebuilt out of a house belonging to Alderman Backwell.
   The Canal Office was at No. 9 in 1810 (Lockie).
   So called, being opposite to the Royal Exchange. The present name is of course merely an abbreviation of the original name "Exchange."
