'Gog (Gogmagog), One of the two City giants burnt in the London Guildhall fire of Sunday December 29th, 1940'. Gog and Magog, are associated with Guildhall. Legend has it that the two giants were defeated by Brutus and chained to the gates of his palace on the site of Guildhall. The earliest versions of Gog and Magog were destroyed during the Great Fire of London. They were replaced in 1708 by a pair of wooden statues carved by Captain Richard Saunders. It was these giants that were destroyed in the Blitz. From The Connoisseur, 1941 edited by H. Granville Fell. [The National Magazine Co. Ltd, London, 1941]
