Fire insurance plaque on eighteenth-century house, Hendon Lane
Between the two windows are the clasped hands of an insurance society founded in 1696, which adopted this logo and then, in 1706, took officially the name of "The Hand-in-Hand".
The records of The Hand-in-Hand, which was later absorbed by the Commercial Union Assurance Company Limited, were deposited at the Guildhall Library and can now be found in the collections of London Metropolitan Archives (reference: CLC/B/055-10).
