1907 Antique RPPC Postcard St. Martins Le Grand London England Street View
St. Martin\'s Le Grand is a former liberty within the City of London, and is the name of a wide street north of Newgate Street and Cheapside and south of Aldersgate Street. It forms the southernmost section of the A1 road. For many years St. Martin\'s Le Grand was the headquarters of the General Post Office (from 1829-1984).
On this very street, Guglielmo Marconi and his assistant George Kemp successfully demonstrated the wireless telegraphy system between two Post Office buildings on 27 July 1896. A transmitter was placed on the roof of the Central Telegraph Office on St. Martin\'s Le Grand, and a receiver on the roof of the General Post Office South on Carter Lane. The distance between the two buildings was just under a thousand feet.
