Royal Mint Square

   South out of Royal Mint Street, east of Cartwright Street (P.O. Directory).
   First shown in O.S. 25 in. 1894-6, but seems to have been formed when the blocks of Artizans' buildings were erected in 1884 (See Katherine Buildings).
   The derivation of the name is obvious.
   The site was formerly occupied by Aldgate Churchyard (New) (q.v,).
