St Pauls Cathedral

On 21 June the foundation stone of St Pauls Cathedral was laid. Wage accounts show that some of the carpenters who worked on it were women. (They were given the title 'widow'). It was common for women married to craftsmen to learn his trade and carry it on if he died. www.localhistories.org/london.html
