Dr Johnson

Further reading of Old and New London reveals that Dr Johnson actually "toiled for Cave, the editor of The Gentleman's Magazine" in a room above the old Jerusalem Tavern at St John's Gate.

Like the ladies of the night who recently lived above the modern Jerusalem Tavern (see Stonch's Beer Blog, 8/8/2007), no doubt he complained about the noise too!
