Golden Boy of Pye Corner
It was erected where the Great Fire of London (1666) stopped and it bears the following inscription:
This Boy is in Memmory Put up for the late FIRE of LONDON Occasion'd by the Sin of Gluttony.
The statue was originally built into the front of a public house called The Fortune of War which used to occupy this site but was demolished in 1910.
