House of Parliament




Today's picture shows the House of Parliament in London, as seen from the river. This is another really interesting shot of London from about 1900. I would bet if you stood on the same spot today, not too much would look different, except maybe the boats.

  1. Does the flag over Parliament fly all the time or only when Parliament is in session, such as when the "Lord of the Manor" is in residence? Very interesting photos!

  2. There is a special flag displayed when Parliment is in sesion....it is a white background with the "Union Flag" displayed in the upper left and on the right side is a shield symbol with a lion ...representing Parliment.
    When they are not in sesion...the normal Union flag is displayed.
