City Engineer of London

Historical background The City Corporation celebrated 1989 as the 800th year of the recorded Mayoralty, but it was not until the Great Fire of 1666 that they looked for ‘some skilful citizen, experienced in dealing with fires’ to help avoid a similar disaster. From this beginning, sprang the District Surveyor service for London and the City Offices of Surveyor, Engineer, and Architect. L.W.E. Groome
